For the Cupcakes:

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup whole milk

For the Frosting:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-3 tablespoons heavy cream

For the Fruit Topping:

  • Assorted fresh fruit (strawberries, blueberries, kiwi, etc.)
  • Honey or apricot jam for glaze


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a muffin tin with cupcake liners, setting it aside for now.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt, creating the dry ingredients mixture. Set this aside for later use.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until the mixture becomes light and fluffy, ensuring a smooth texture for our cupcakes.
  4. Add the eggs one at a time to the butter-sugar mixture, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract to infuse the batter with its delightful flavor.
  5. Gradually add the dry ingredients mixture to the wet ingredients, alternating with the milk, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined, being careful not to overmix the batter.
  6. Divide the batter evenly among the prepared cupcake liners, filling each about 2/3 full, allowing room for them to rise beautifully in the oven.
  7. Bake the cupcakes in the preheated oven for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, indicating they’re perfectly baked.
  8. Once baked, remove the cupcakes from the oven and allow them to cool in the pan for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely, preparing them for their final adornment.

For the Frosting:

  1. In a mixing bowl, beat the softened butter until creamy, ensuring a smooth base for our luscious frosting.
  2. Gradually add the powdered sugar, one cup at a time, mixing well after each addition to create a smooth and creamy texture.
  3. Stir in the vanilla extract, infusing our frosting with its delightful essence.
  4. Add the heavy cream, one tablespoon at a time, until the frosting reaches the desired consistency, achieving that perfect balance of lightness and richness.
  5. Beat the frosting on medium-high speed for 2-3 minutes, until it becomes light and fluffy, ready to adorn our cupcakes with its irresistible charm.

To Assemble:

  1. Once the cupcakes are completely cooled, frost each cupcake with the prepared frosting, spreading it evenly to create a smooth surface for our fruit topping.
  2. Arrange assorted fresh fruit on top of each cupcake, letting your creativity shine as you create colorful and enticing designs.
  3. For an extra touch of sweetness and gloss, warm honey or apricot jam in a small saucepan over low heat until melted, brushing the glaze over the fruit topping for a glossy finish that enhances both flavor and appearance.
  4. Serve these delightful Fruit-Topped Cupcakes immediately to eager guests, or store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator until you’re ready to enjoy their irresistible charm.
