Notes

  • When creating the board, you can add store-bought angel food cake, biscuits, or even glazed donuts to create a delicious shortcake. This can save time in the kitchen but homemade is always my favorite.
  • Are you looking for the perfect cream biscuit? These are delicious and so easy to make.
  • Angel food cake is the perfect summertime cake, which makes this shortcake board perfect.
  • Add all your favorite summertime fruit- Creating a mixed fruit bowl, I add 2 cups of sliced strawberries, ½ cup of blueberries, and 1 tablespoon of sugar.
  • Make your own whipping cream and add your favorite extract to it. You can also use a cool whip as well.
  • Save yourself a little time by picking up a pack of premade sugar cookies from the store. The kids will love making a strawberry shortcake cookie.
  • You can prepare the biscuits and even the fruit bowl the day before if you are running close on time.
