All this talk about Strawberry Shortcake put me in the mood for some. I headed to the store, grabbed a few ingredients and whipped up my take on the delicious summer treat.
Easy Red, White, and Blue Strawberry Shortcake
This is super easy to make. Just buy angel food cakes and fill with fresh fruit. Top with whip cream.
For fresh fruit with syrup (pictured above) follow these directions.
Fresh Fruit Syrup
Clean fresh strawberries and blueberries. (I use a water and vinegar bath to clean my fruits and veggies). Make sure fruit is dry. Pour a generous amount of sugar over all the fruit making sure everything is coated well. Refrigerate for several hours. Serve when ready.
