Strawberry Shortcake Summertime Classic


Really Easy and Really Impressive

Talk about a big Wow Factor. I’m not kidding you at all when I say this version of a strawberry shortcake is super easy to make.  The recipe is simple enough to have on any occasion.  But it’s beautiful enough to serve for any special occasion also.  This cake has been my contribution to wedding showers, baby showers, Canada Day celebrations, Father’s Day Celebrations, and even Tuesdays.   You can make your own Angel Food Cake or start with a store bought variety – entirely up to you!


Homemade Strawberry Shortcake

Choose fresh strawberries and sliced in half, or whole berries with the stems removed for the garnish up top and you have an amazing dessert sure to impress your guests, and satisfy your sweet , but not too sweet, tooth.

Careful not to mix the berries too much, or you’re lush white cream will become pink – which actually isn’t a bad thing either – especially for a bridal shower!
