TWD Tender Shortcakes

Strawberry Shortcake should not start with a little round Hostess sponge cake! I am so glad I made Dories Tender Shortcakes. A few simple ingredients combine to make a most delicious dessert. Top these yummy cakes with sweetened berries and whipped cream for a perfect summer dessert.

 We have some excellent bakers in our TWD group, Cathy is our hostess this week. Check her blog for the complete recipe. I made half the recipe and got 8 shortcakes. I put 4 in the freezer to be baked another day. I love putting treats in the freezer, it is like finding hidden treasures. We just finished the last slice of Banana-Coconut Ice Cream Pie, it was delicious!

Your photo is a gem. I could eat that from the screen. Wow quality!

Your freezer must be happy with that inside.

My husband really likes the Hostess spong cakes and joked that he was going to post his version of this week's recipe. He ended up really liking the shortcakes.

Yours looks fabulous. Good job!

Gorgeous dessert! I briefly thought about freezing some, but then changed my mind after tasting one. Now, I'll just have to make more. :)

Your shortcake looks great with the strawberries--I must try that next! Too bad I didn't save any in the freezer!

Mmm, a motherload of strawberries... nice. Your shortcakes look delish!

You are so right, there's no going back to the ones you buy at the grocery store after tasting these. Yours look so good with the whipped cream and berries...mmm...!

Your shortcakes look just perfect, and I am so glad that you enjoyed them! And what a treat to have some waiting for you in the freezer! Thank you so much for baking along with me this week!

Your cakes look scrumptious! Wish I'd frozen some too - they do not keep well.

Lovely photo of your shortcakes. These were one of my favorite picks.

Spike said...

looks great- especially the whipped cream, yum. I love finding baked treasures in the freezer too!

Kayte said...

Perfection...your shortcake photo is just gorgeous. LOL on finding treasures in the freezer...I have two teenage boys and "treasures" never make it to the freezer! At Christmas when I want to hide cookies for cookie trays, I hide and disguise them in boxes labeled "Chicken Parts" or "Liver and Gizzards" and things like that so they won't eat them....shhhh...don't tell!
