Mason Jar Strawberry Shortcake

Submitted by Ann Kelly


So I think Strawberry shortcake is the best dessert EVER. It is simple, fresh, light and so yummy. In my small family I use mason jars a lot for our meals like putting our Layered Salad in Mason Jars. But this way they still don't last forever but I can make them ahead for a couple days.
Angel Food Cake
Whipping cream
powdered sugar
strawberries
cream cheese

I take the whipping cream and beat with about 1 TBS powdered sugar per cup of cream until the cream is whipped where stiff peaks will stand. Then I remove the whipped cream from my mixer and whip the cream cheese (1/2 block to 2 cups of whipped cream)  until it is nice and smooth then I fold in the whipped cream into the cream cheese.

Then in the jar I layer diced angel food cake, sliced strawberries, and the whipped mixture. You can make as much or as little as you like of this sweet treat.

  4. Looks yummy, but I'm confused. You say, "I take the whipping cream and beat with about 1 TBS per cup of cream until the cream is whipped..." What are you referring to when you mention the 1 TBS per cup of cream?

  28. I am looking for a desert like this that I can make the night before, I have a 5 hour drive so they would be in the fridge overnight and then packed in a cooler- what do you think? will the whipped cream be ok for that??? any variation of this that might be better for prep ahead, was thinking to add some blueberries too for a red white and blue fourth dessert?????

    1. you could put the fruit on the bottom, then the cake and take the whipped cream to add once out of the cooler if worried about it.
