Strawberry shortcake is the classic summertime and springtime dessert. I grew up eating this classic dessert and look forward to baking it when it starts to heat up outside. Every year, our family would get together and strawberry pick in the farm fields of Wisconsin. After our gigantic strawberry haul, mom would make a batch of strawberry shortcake and homemade strawberry jam.
This recipe is actually adapted from my Strawberry Shortcake recipe I made last year. Because that recipe is such a hit, I wanted to extend it to cupcakes. Because it gets so hot out in the summer, I wanted to make a frosting that would withstand the summer heat of New Orleans. Even with the air at 66 degrees in the house, traditional whipped cream frosting melts into a big hot mess.
