white cupcakes with strawberry buttercream

Well, Martha did it again. She lured me in with her pretty pictures and delicious recipe titles. Half a day and about a thousand dirty dishes later, I had 24 completely disastrous-looking, but so very melt-in-your-mouth yummy white cupcakes with strawberry meringue buttercream frosting.

If you tried to make a cupcake version of strawberry shortcake, this is what you would get. The cake calls for eight egg whites, so it is almost like an angel food. It is light and moist and sweet. I may have over beaten my egg whites just a little bit, so be careful.

The icing is sort of frothy and meringue-y, with a fresh strawberry flavor that comes from jam added at the end. I like that there are little bits of real strawberry in the frosting. Also, they were the perfect shade of pink!

A note: These are not your average cupcakes. They take an awful lot of work, but they are worth it!


  1. They look divine. Thanks for the tips!

  2. That sounds like a perfect cupcake! Simple & sweet.

  3. My oh my they look delicious. Debating whether to try them for dinner on Sunday.

  4. They were so,so,so good! Very strawberry-y!
