Once the shortcake absorbed the juices of the fresh strawberries macerated in sugar, the dessert was even more incredible. The moist cake, fluffy homemade whipped cream and sweet and slightly softened strawberries made for a deliciously divine combination.

I may or may not have devoured the entire shortcake in the photo above for breakfast. :)
