Saturday is National Strawberry Shortcake Day. As if we needed a day to enjoy this fabulous dessert.
“Modern Family” actress Aubrey Anderson-Emmons (who plays Lily) is a huge fan of Strawberry Shortcake – the adorable program that I grew up loving too and has recently made a big comeback. So on her birthday, Aubrey was presented with her very own custom strawberry-shortcake cake for her 7th birthday by “Cutthroat Kitchen”-winning Chef Sandra Cordero. To help dessert lovers and Strawberry Shortcake fans mark the occasion with their own version of Aubrey’s cake, AG Properties, the intellectual property and outbound licensing division of American Greetings Corporation, has allowed me to pass along this amazing recipe.
Me and my favorite 5-year-old daughter made this recipe together. It took quite a bit of time with lots of steps but it was much easier than I expected and it was so delicious!
Strawberry Shortcake debuted in 1980 as a line of social expressions products, as well as toys, videos, games, crafts and books. The character quickly catapulted from being a little girl with a mop of red hair into an overnight success. Today, the little girl with the big personality is winning the hearts of a third generation of consumers.
