This is very easy to make. My younger son helped me make this for dessert tonight. Strawberry shortcake is my fav... and it's a good treat to start the summer with.

This is a cool and yummy take on strawberry shortcake. The two different puddings layered in a dish with vanilla wafers and strawberries is not only beautiful but is delicious on top of the pound cake. The cheesecake pudding makes this rich while the strawberry pudding just enhances the overall strawberry flavor. You could easily eat the pudding layer on its own. This would be a great dessert if serving a large crowd. Just slice up the pound cake, set out the strawberry sauce and pudding, then everyone can build their own.
