Blue Ribbon Recipe

These sweet little bites made our taste buds so happy! They taste like inside out strawberry shortcakes. The cake and strawberry combine to make a great filling. Quick and easy to make, they'll be adorable at your parties this summer. We loved this super easy recipe. It's one the kids can help with too. We recommend preparing these at the last minute to make sure the whipped cream does not deflate.

    Variations: Discard strawberry flesh and use only cake bits. A JIFFY yellow cake mix, baked according to package directions may be used for the cake. Add a splash of either almond flavoring, extract or Amaretto to strawberry flesh before stirring in cake bits. Sweeten the strawberry flesh with just a little bit of sugar or artificial sweetener. Use one of the strawberry filler recipes on JAP and dollop on top of cake filler, top with whipped cream and blueberry.
