Shortcake Charcuterie Board is a delicious Build Your Own Shortcake experience that friends and family will have a ton of fun enjoying! Loaded with fresh fruit, cookies, whipped cream, and cake!
This simple dessert Charcuterie is a fun way to serve classic Strawberry Shortcakes to a big crowd!
Hold on tight because Summer just got a whole lot more exciting with this Shortcake Charcuterie Board! Kids up to adults will love making their own shortcake exactly the way they like it!
This dessert board is guaranteed to be a hit with the piles of juicy fruit, sweet whipped cream, and soft cakes or cookies! And you’ll love how easy it can be to throw together if you’re in a time crunch!
I’m a big fan of homemade cream biscuits and angel food cake, however, time can certainly get away from any of us! If that’s the case – you can head right to the store and grab what you need to toss onto your board and still wow your guests!
Give guests the best Build Your Own Shortcake experience by loading up the board with plenty of options! Start by arranging the Sugar Cookies, Angel Food Cake, Vanilla Wafers, Cream Biscuits, and/or Dessert Sponge Cake Cups.
These will be the base that holds the juicy fruit and sweet whipped cream! Now – homemade is definitely the way to my heart! But don’t be afraid to save on time and grab what you need at the store!
As for fruit, use exactly what you like! You could do a heaping bowl of mixed berries with strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries.
Or you could set out smaller bowls of each fruit so that friends and family can just use what they like! Lastly, the whipped cream!
Again, I love the taste of homemade whipped cream but you can also use store-bought. Cool whip and canned whipped cream are always a fan favorite as well.
To finish up the Shortcake Charcuterie Board I tuck in a bowl of powdered sugar. This way everyone can add a sweet sprinkle to their desserts before enjoying them!
How To Make A Strawberry Shortcake Board

- Add the bowls of whipped cream and powdered sugar.
- Fill the empty spaces with fresh fruit and serve!
Frequently Asked Questions
How Many Servings Will This Charcuterie Provide?
This depends largely on how many biscuits, cookies, and/or dessert shell cups you have. As well as the amount of fruit and whipped cream.
However, it’s incredibly easy to tailor this to the size crowd you’ll be serving though!
What’s The Best Recipe For Making A Mixed Fruit Bowl?
My favorite consists of 2 cups of sliced strawberries, 1/2 cup of blueberries, and 1 tablespoon of sugar. If you need a larger serving just double or even triple that recipe!
Can I Prep This Dessert Tray Ahead Of Time?
Yes! You could either buy or make the biscuits, angel food cake, or cookies a day ahead of time. The fruit can also be prepped the day before as well.
Then when it’s closer to serving time just arrange the tray!
