NATIONAL STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE DAY
National Strawberry Shortcake Day is observed each year on June 14th. Either on a shortcake biscuit or a sponge cake, strawberry shortcake is an easy and refreshing summertime dessert!
Strawberries are sliced, mixed with sugar then allowed to sit for about an hour until they have surrendered plenty of their juices. The shortcakes are then split, and the bottom is covered with a layer of the strawberries, juice and whipped cream. The top is then put back on, and more strawberries, juice and whipped cream are added to finish it off.
HOW TO OBSERVE
