These cupcakes are all inspired by classic desserts, from strawberry shortcake to key lime pie!
I made these light, tangy cupcakes on a chilly day to remind me of our vacation in southern Florida, where Key lime pies are star attractions. —Jennifer Gilbert, Brighton, Michigan
Back when store-bought shortcake was an unheard-of thing, my grandmother passed this mini strawberry shortcake recipe down to my mother. Mother later shared it with me, and I’ve since given it to my daughter. —Althea Heers, Jewell, Iowa
Boston cream bismarcks have been my favorite bakery treat since I was a child, so I put together this easy-to-make cupcake version. —Jeanne Holt, Mendota Heights, Minnesota
