Elegant Strawberry Desserts


Strawberry desserts are simple. Just arrange washed and trimmed fresh berries on pound cake slices, shortcakes, or angel food cake, and decorate with whipped cream. According to the American Algonquin tribe, Strawberry season begins this year on Summer Solstice, which is always the longest day of the year–seventeen hours long, to be precise. This full moon coincides with strawberry season’s start in the Northern Hemisphere once every seventy years, which is why the June 20th, 2016 full moon is called “Strawberry Moon“. ©M-J de Mesterton 2016

This angel food cake was store-bought, as it is challenging to produce at home. Serve strawberries-and-cream on any sort of vanilla or white cake to create a brilliant ending to luncheon or dinner.
