Strawberries and Cream Cupcakes (filled)

Desiree Stone


Over the last two years, I have experimented with different variations of many desserts. First, I tried pies which I decided wasn't my forte. I then tried cheesecakes, cakes, fudge, cookies, and now cupcakes! I came across a few recipes that I really liked and decided to combine them into one dessert dish. Strawberries and Cream cupcakes filled with a homemade marshmallow creme filling - yummy. After having all of my family and some of my coworkers try these, I decided it would be a nice idea to enter them into a fair for judgment. To my surprise, I got first place! Enjoy.

How to Make Strawberries and Cream Cupcakes (filled)


  • 1For Cake: Set egg whites, buttermilk and butter out at room temperature for, no less than, 30 minutes.

    Prepare muffin pan by placing aluminum muffin cups in each indention.
  • 2Preheat over to 350 degrees.

    Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a small mixing bowl; set aside.

    Cream butter, sugar, and vanilla in a separate bowl (medium mixing bowl). Add egg whites, little by little, until completely combined. Alternately adding flour and buttermilk, beat after each addition until all is combined.
  • 3Pour a 1/4 cup scoop of cake mixture into each muffin cup. Bake at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes.

    Take out of oven to cool; while preparing filling and frosting.
  • 4Marshmallow Creme filling:
    Place egg whites and cream of tartar in a stand-up mixer, such as Kitchen-Aid. Whip on medium while making the syrup.

    Combine sugar, corn syrup, water, and salt in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally, until mixture has reached 240 degrees (you will need a candy thermometer for this).

    Add syrup, slowly, to the now whipped egg whites. Once combined, whip for an additional 6-8 minutes until thickened. Creme should be thick and glossy.
  • 5Strawberry Creme Buttercream Frosting:
    Whip butter, until creamy, in a small mixing bowl. Add marshmallow creme and vanilla; combine until smooth. Sift 10x sugar over creamed mixture and combine; this will assure no lumps form.

    Add pureed strawberries; mixture will be loose once combined. Add 10x sugar, a 1/2 cup at a time, until desired consistency is reached.
  • 6Cool cupcakes completely. Once cooled, pipe your marshmallow creme into the middle of each cupcake; stick tip about half way into the middle of the cupcake and squeeze for a second, letting loose and lifting the pastry bag away with care.

    Using another pastry bag, pipe frosting onto cupcakes using an up and down continual motion to create a slight wave; starting from the outside, in (let a little bit of the cream filling show in the center; which creates a flower effect).
  • 7Let cupcakes sit for 30 minutes before serving. Store in the refrigerator for freshness.
