These Fresh Strawberry Cupcakes with Whipped Cream Frosting are the real deal. Nothing artificial goes into these baby cakes. These cupcakes are tender, moist, and bursting with fresh strawberries. The Strawberry Whipped Cream Frosting is spoon-lickin’ great!
It’s official. My youngest one graduated with cap, gown, and diploma in hand this week.
Granted, the diploma was a rolled-up blank white paper. Wisely done, so the hands that received the mock-ups needn’t fret about crumpling, losing, or ripping the real deal.
Because the hands that proudly shook their instructors’ hands belonged to preschoolers.
Past preschoolers, now Big Graduates who will hand their hard-earned lemonade stand money to the ice-cream trucks all summer. And then head off to kindergarten in the fall.
I’ve been here 3 times now, and I prepared myself for the bittersweet moments this week would bring. We hugged the teachers and reminisced about all 3 boys having hung their Cars backpacks up on those same walls. And how this is the last time I’ll hold a tiny hand down those familiar little hallways…
And I realize once again how fleeting every season is. And how this probably never really ends, this parenting thing with its stages, seasons, and chapters.
So it is with bittersweet joy that I celebrate the end of this chapter with you guys today. Any celebration clearly includes food! 🙂
Since fresh strawberries are my Littlest’s favorite treat in the whole wide universe, these Fresh Strawberry Cupcakes are the perfect dessert. With Strawberry Whipped Cream Frosting, no less. It is a seriously fabulous combination. Fabulous, from top to bottom!
These cupcakes boast the fresh and fruity flavors of real strawberries in every bite. The tender, soft, and unbelievably moist crumb satisfies any cupcake lover. The strawberry whipped cream frosting is my favorite part…SO full of strawberry flavor, light, refreshing, and the perfect topping for these baby cakes.
People will ask you for the recipe. I’ve been told by my grown-up friends that these are their favorite cupcakes. In the whole wide universe.
