Is there anything more lovely than strawberry shortcake cupcakes with real whipped cream, fresh strawberries and a hint of lemon?
Yesterday I shared a bowl of lovely macerating strawberries: sugar, chopped strawberries and some lemon zest all melded together to create a sweet, fruity yummy-ness complete with a berry-infused syrup.
Really, I could have just picked up a spoon and hoovered the whole thing in about 60 seconds flat.
But instead I saved them for this recipe as intended. Probably a good idea; my family appreciated that.
Being Father’s Day focused on a dessert that my husband would love and strawberry shortcake happens to be one of them. A BIG one.
Plus, who doesn’t love cupcakes? And homemade whipped cream?
