It is not often that I find myself staring at the glass case of a bakery. I’m a little arrogant when it comes to baking. I think I’m a pretty decent baker, so I rarely feel the need to stop and purchase baked goods. Sometimes, however, I find my car mysteriously pulling into the parking lot of local cupcake shops. I think my car likes it when I do “research”.
The idea for these strawberry lemonade cheesecakes came from a recent excursion with my girls. After a day full of shopping we found ourselves in need of a little pick me up. We found the perfect little cupcake shop to enjoy an afternoon snack. I typically gravitate towards anything caramel or chocolate. Cherry Coke Cupcakes and Bailey’s Salted Caramel Brownies are where my heart usually lies, but for someone reason, lemonade cheesecakes were calling my name. I’m so glad they were calling my name because I fell in love with the idea of lemonade flavored cheesecakes! And idea was instantly born.
These little cheesecakes have a bright and sunny flavor that is sure to pick you up! They only take about two about two bites to consume, so the fact that they are topped with a decadent buttercream is no big thing, right? The cheesecake is light and fluffy while the buttercream is creamy and luscious. The tart cheesecakes are the perfect foil to the sweet frosting. A buttery lemon Oreo crust pulls it all together!
Just like these strawberry cupcakes, these little treats are the epitome of summer. They are sunny and vibrant with flavor to match! Make these to impress your guests or just because. These strawberry lemonade cupcakes are bound to make you happy!
I still think I can make many things I see in bakeries, but it sure is fun searching for inspiration!
