Strawberry Party: Strawberry Shortcake Jars

One of my favorite desserts is Strawberry Shortcake.  There is something so sweet and refreshing about the taste of fresh strawberries and I love the texture of angel food cake.  See just writing about this makes me want to go whip up a little treat right now.    I will not do this, however, because swimsuit season is sneaking upon us and frankly…it already isn’t a pretty picture!

For the Strawberry Lemonade play date we did last week.  I made some super yummy little strawberry shortcake jars. Like the Strawberry Buckets, these were also Easy Peasy.


To make these Strawberry Shortcake Jars, you need:

  • Angel food cake (homemade or store bought)
  • fresh strawberries
  • sugar
  • Ziplock Bag
  • spray whip cream
  • mason jars (pint sized)
  • patterned paper
  • baker’s twine
  • small wooden spoons
  • Fork
  • Scissors

Step One.  Use a fork to pull pieces of angle food cake and place them in the bottom of clean mason jars.  You don’t want to smash the cake, but fill in as much of the bottom half as you can.

Step Two.  Slice strawberries. Place the sliced strawberries and some sugar (roughly 1/8 cup) into the ziplock bag with a little water.  Shake the bag until all the sugar is melted into the starwberries.

Step Three. Add a layer of srawberries to the jars.

Step Four.  Fill the remainder of the mason jar with Spray whip cream.

Step Five.  Using the metal insert as a guide, trace and cut circle from patterned paper or scrapbook paper.  Place paper over metal insert inside the mason jar lid and secure lid.image_1-001

Step Six.  Wrap jar with baker’s twine and stick a small wooden spoon into the twine.  Spoons can be embellished with stamps or washi tape as desired.

Serve and enjoy.  They are fun, cute and easy!  Can’t ask for more than that:)

    How long of a shelf life will the strawberry shortcake in a jar have without refrigeration.

    • Holly Lasha says

      There would be several factors…if your outside or inside, how hot it is, etc. As a general rule, I try not to leave things like that out more than a couple hours total regardless.

        Do you think it is possible to bring these as valentine’s gift for school? Maybe putting them in the mason jars before I leave to school? do you have any suggestion to preserve them better?

    Do you mind if I quote a couple of your articles as long as I provide credit and sources back to your blog?
    My blog is in the exact same niche as yours and my users would certainly benefit from a lot of the information you provide here.

    Please let me know if this alright with you. Many thanks!

    You actually make it appear so easy along with your presentation but I to find this topic
    to be really one thing that I think I might never understand.
    It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me. I’m taking a look ahead to your next publish, I will attempt to get the dangle of it!
