National Strawberry Shortcake Day | Strawberry Shortcake Parfait
The alternative name for this dessert is Yes Please because that’ll what I’ll always say when presented with a strawberry shortcake dessert. It doesn’t much matter if I just ate until I couldn’t eat anymore – strawberry shortcake can always be on my menu.
For the food holiday, I made strawberry syrup, cup up strawberries and pound cake, and topped the dessert with whipped cream. Happy National Strawberry Shortcake Day to me, and to you!
