Bite Sized Strawberry Shortcake

            Summertime means strawberries and shortcake, strawberry sundaes and all other desserts made with strawberries. Some of my favorite memories were Sundays growing up. Our dad basically blackmailed us. If we could behave throughout the whole church service, we would get to be the one that helped him make his Sunday Surprises. These were basically a dessert or a treat we would get in the afternoon or evening after dinner.

My dad loved to create treats for us. We all loved Strawberry shortcake, but at times, it did get boring because we all knew what he was going to make. So this man, whom we love dearly, found ways to surprise us even more.

            Even as an adult now, I am amazed how he could think of some of these recipes. His recipe for kabobs just blew my mind! How can you put strawberry shortcake on a thin stick? Well, my dad figured it out and now it is my job to share it with you. I have made a couple of tweaks to help make it easier in today’s world.

            These are treats that I am happy to serve to all my friends, to bring to potluck dinners at church or just a special treat at our dinner table. We all enjoy the taste of strawberries and then we alternate which cake type we use. We all have a different favorite so far.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Can I use different fruits?

You can mix it up and use peaches, raspberries or even bananas.

Tips:

Another method of filling the skewer is to place a strawberry, piece of cake, strawberry, cake etc until the skewer is full. Use a can of spray whipped topping and spray along the stick to cover each piece. Then you could drizzle chocolate syrup, or caramel syrup across the whipped topping.

Of course, it is always a great idea to turn this into an activity that the whole family does. Each person can make their own kabob. Have a variety of fruit available in bowls, a variety of toppings and also use a variety of the cake.

With the options of flavored syrups, nuts, chocolate chips and all the fruits and types of cake, this could be desserts for a year. Just kidding, One cannot eat the same types of foods daily, Variety is the spice of life!
