How to Make Mini Strawberry Shortcakes
You’ll also need a small pound cake from your local grocery store, a container of strawberries, some sugar, vanilla, and homemade whipped cream (which I’ll describe how to make below).
Start by cutting a small pound cake loaf into cubes. Next, it’s time to slice the strawberries into small bites.
Place the strawberries into a bowl, then add 2 Tbsp. of sugar and 1/4 cup of water. Stir and let sit while you make the whipped cream.
Pour a pint of heavy whipping cream into the bowl of your stand-up mixer (ad) and crank it up! In only one minute, you’ll have beautiful peaks of fluffy whipped cream which is so much better than the refrigerated stuff. Add a little powdered sugar and a teaspoon of vanilla for flavor, then mix with a big spoon.
As in all good things, the fun starts when you throw it all together. Layer a few cubes of pound cake in the bottom of each glass, followed by strawberries with syrup, then add whipped cream. Repeat the steps and finish with a sliced strawberry on top.
Mini Strawberry Shortcakes take a small amount of work for a big payoff. They’re the perfect dessert for bridal showers, children’s parties, and birthday celebrations.
