You can find all of the ingredients that you need to make these cupcakes at your local grocery store. However, there are a few items that you’ll need to be aware of:

This recipe calls for sour cream and whole milk which can both be difficult to measure correctly. You should always use a digital scale when measuring your ingredients to avoid any inaccurate measurements. Also, the butter should be at room temperature when making these cupcakes to ensure that it will emulsify properly with the rest of the ingredients.

Make the Frosting

These Strawberry Shortcake Ice Cream Cupcakes are a fun twist on a classic dessert. They are made with a soft and moist vanilla cupcake, filled with strawberry jam, then topped with a tangy whipped cream cheese frosting.

To make the frosting you will need butter, icing sugar, cream cheese, and vanilla extract. Be sure to chill the icing before making it as this helps it to whip up best.

Using an electric hand whisk, beat the butter until creamy and pale in color. Sift the icing sugar over the butter and mix to combine.

Add the remaining ingredients and mix to combine. Transfer to a piping bag fitted with a 1M piping tip.

Pipe a swirl of the frosting onto each cupcake and then sprinkle with the strawberry crunch topping. You can also press the crunch into the sides of each cupcake.

Make the Strawberry Crunch Topping

The perfect finishing touch to these Strawberry Shortcake Ice Cream Cupcakes is a delicious, fruity Strawberry Crunch Topping. It’s super easy to make, requiring only three ingredients.

To make the topping, first crush 24 Golden Oreos into crumbles with a food processor or zipper bag & rolling pin. Then, stir in freeze dried strawberries and strawberry Jell-O powder (do not add water).

Once the ingredients are broken down into crumbs, work melted butter into them well to bind them together. This step is key for creating the right texture and flavor, so don’t skip it!
