Nothing shouts “SUMMER!” quite like strawberry shortcake. If you’ve ever denied yourself a slice of this American favorite because of additives or other unhealthy ingredients…those days are over! We’ve created a recipe that will undoubtedly make its way to many picnics and BBQs.

Welcome the warm weather with this refreshing and delicious treat. We’re confident that it will bring smiles and requests for more.

2) Get creative—here are a couple ideas:

  • Create strawberry shortcake mini skewers by layering the mini vanilla cupcakes, whipped topping, and sliced strawberries.
  • Cut the cupcakes in half horizontally and make a cupcake sandwich by layering the whipped topping and sliced strawberries in the middle
  • Chop the strawberries into tiny pieces and mix into the whipped topping to create a whipped strawberry filling.
