Memorial Day Cupcakes

Posted by Courtney Lopez on

Try our delicious fresh fruit Memorial Day cupcakes!
We used everything that we have listed in our Vanilla Cupcake, White Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting, Strawberries on Top! Recipe.  It’s super simple to make and the flavors are incredibly delicious.  I just love the white chocolate with the cream cheese frosting.  The cake itself is a little reminiscent of a shortcake that you would find in a strawberry shortcake, so while looking back I should have really named them Strawberry Shortcake cupcakes, live and learn.  However these cupcakes are deserving of that incredibly long title.  It’s a family favorite and I’ve made it easily dozens of times.  It’s perfect for Memorial Day with Strawberries and Blueberries.  You could easily adapt it with any fruit to make it fit the theme or Holiday you’re celebrating!

I really love to pile fresh fruit on cupcakes whenever I can.  The fresh fruit is so bright and really wakes up the flavors of the cupcake and frosting.  In a way you feel like it lightens up the meal, it’s still a dessert, but you’re getting your fruit in too!  My daughter will even pick out the berries and then eat the frosting and cake.  Berries are her absolute favorite!  As I’m updating this text I know I need to actually update the pictures and will definitely be doing that soon.  I can’t wait to make these again and eat them too!
Sometimes I add blackberries and do a little bit of a lemon flavor into the frosting.  This is such a versatile recipe and we know you’re going to love it!
