How to Make Strawberry Shortcake Cupcakes


  1. Bake cupcakes as directed per cake mix. Adjust your water, oil and egg whites accordingly. I use Duncan Hines.
  2. While cupcakes are baking. Dice 2 cups of strawberries in 1/8- 1/4 inch in size. Add sugar to taste. Refrigerate until ready to fill.
  3. When cupcakes are cool, take a spoon or melon ballers work great and scoop out the center of the cupcake. Do not go too deep. You are creating a pocket for your filling.
  4. Drain excess syrup from strawberry filling and fill cupcake pockets.
  5. Whip together whipping cream, powdered sugar, pudding mix and vanilla until stiff peaks form. Do not over whip.
  6. Pipe on frosting or apply with spatula. We prefer a lot of frosting on our cupcakes.
  7. Garnish with fresh strawberries and raw sugar ;if desired.
  8. These cupcakes need to be refrigerated and do not store longer than a few days...if they last that long.
  9. Enjoy!
