These little strawberry shortcake cupcakes are so fun to eat! They get requested a lot for cookouts around here!

Just like classic strawberry shortcake these cupcakes are super light and makes the perfect end to a grilled dinner!

I love that they are super easy and portable. They pack in all the flavors of a strawberry shortcake! Matter of fact, I've had people that don't like strawberry shortcake but still love these cuties! They are a true crowd pleaser!

The strawberry cream frosting is amazing! I could seriously eat this stuff alone! We think it taste like a strawberry cream cheesecake! The vanilla whipped cream cupcakes bakes up super fluffy, but firm and spongy enough to hold up to that fresh strawberries and cream frosting!

I hope you guys enjoy them as much as we do!
