Strawberry Shortcake Alert!

I just enjoyed a divine strawberry shortcake from Bakesale Betty's. After my first bite, I thought, "Oooooh, so *this* is what strawberry shortcake is supposed to taste like. No wonder people get excited about it!"

It had very ripe, juicy berries, great shortcake, and a big slug of whipped cream. The single serving was a lot for one person, but I FORCED myself to eat every bit of it. (As an aside, the fried chicken breast sandwich that I was actually there for was excellent, as always.)

  1. with all the recent raves I've got to get over there and try one. She posted the recipe on her website - you can pick up the cakes at the Temescal Market this weekend + some strawberries and whip them up at your house.
