Strawberry Shortcake Cupcakes I made these and they are really delicious. It may seem like a lot of steps but they are very easy to make. I didn't have a vanilla bean and they were still great but I will try and get a vanilla bean for the next batch :-)
Pastry Cream Recipe ~ is the filling/base of many desserts. Use it to make/fill countless cakes, pastries, trifles, mousses, pies etc.. You can also flavor pastry cream by whipping the finished product with peanut butter, nutella, caramel, melted chocolate, ground spices, extracts and liquors to taste. Just dont overdo it on the liquid elements, lest you give the pastry cream a soupy texture.
