Easy Fancy Strawberry Shortcake

Easy Fancy Strawberry Shortcake
Today I will show you how I made this easy fancy strawberry shortcake.  I am not going to give you a recipe just assembly instructions.  I used a white cake mix for the shortcake and prepared as directed on box.  I took equal parts whipped cream and vanilla icing whipped together and spooned that into the center of the cake.  I have placed whole cherries and then sliced up strawberries on top of that.  I then took a ready-made strawberry pie glaze and drizzled that on top of the fruit.  Then I garnished with mint leaves and strawberry blossoms.   

Nordic Ware Marianne Pan

Here is the cake pan I used to make my cake.  It is a Nordic Ware pan, the Marianne pan.  I found mine at a consignment store.  It has that nice basket weave pattern on the sides that works perfectly with shortcake.

Strawberry season is one of my favorite times of the year to bake.  I love using the fruit to garnish and style food.  Do you like strawberry season like me?

This does seem pretty easy! I confess sometimes I'm too lazy to make the shortcake and just eat strawberries and whipped cream!

This is a beautiful cake, Sherry, and a beautiful post yesterday too. I'm sure you and your family enjoyed this delicious creation with strawberries and cream. Yes, I do love strawberry season; fresh strawberries are hard to beat. :)

Have a great day!

Beautiful cake! I love strawberry shortcake, but have never used a special pan. The way you arranged the berries with the little flowers and mint leaves makes this look like a boquet.
