      Red Velvet Cupcakes

      I can't think of any better time to enjoy a strawberry shortcake than the long,golden and warm days of summer.So adding this cupcake to my summertime baking was a really natural progression!I love the light whipped cream and the fresh tart strawberry in combination with the dreamy red velvet cake.

      The reason this version of the classic Strawberry Shortcake is the best is that of the awesome Red Velvet Cupcake recipe.Perfectly decadent and rich,when paired with the strawberries and whipped cream,these cupcakes are WINNING!

      However… I made one very tiny teensy weensy addition.

      Grenadine!I drizzled a bit (maybe 1/2 teaspoon) over the top and let it soak into those glorious strawberries.Then,realizing just how amazing that tasted,I got the idea to drizzle some more on the cupcake prior to assembling them.Do it.Just do it.

      Assembling these cupcakes it really easy:

      Prepare red velvet cupcakes.(recipe below)

      Drizzle grenadine.(optional.Nevermind,not optional!) Cut up strawberry into flat slices.Place on the cupcake.Drop a dollop of whipped cream on top.Cover with more strawberries.

      Drizzle with more grenadine.

      Then eat seven because it's fruit and good for you.*

      这不是对你有好处。Don't listen to me,I write a blog 德赢体育游戏about sugar and cake.

      I used Cool Whip because I love it,but you can certainly use a homemade whipped cream.(this recipeis great,simply swap out the peppermint for vanilla)

      That extra layer of strawberries under the whipped cream makes such a difference.Then when you bite into the red velvet… it's so unexpected!但令人惊叹。

      Seriously amazing.
