How cute is this dessert?
I don’t know what it is, but when I say the words strawberry shortcake it just makes me smile. And what’s not to smile about? A light and flakey biscuit cake thingy, smothered with homemade whipped cream and marinated strawberries. Literally drooling.
Can I tell you something? (I can’t believe I’m about to say this out loud) And by out loud I mean silently write it on my computer.
I used to hate strawberries. Eeeeeeek!
I’m talking like many moons ago when I was a kid. Literally, hated strawberries. I couldn’t stand the texture, the taste, nothing. ACK! These days I can eat them by the barrel.
Strawberries should come by the barrel. Don’t ya think?
This was my first ever strawberry shortcake, and I’m pretty damn proud of it.
Oh, and that shortcake.
Light and airy, topped with fresh homemade whipped cream, and those beautiful berries. Nom nom nom nom nom.
It doesn’t get much better than this.
Happy happy joy joy!
