More About This Recipe

  • These aren't difficult to make, just difficult to keep around! So you know how it’s February? And it’s freezing cold and all we want is some warmth this Valentine’s Day? Well, I can’t give you warmth (unless you live in a warm state… then I'm very jealous of you), but I can give you a little burst of fresh summer flavors mixed with the perfect Valentine’s Day dessert. We saw this Red Velvet Strawberry Shortcake over at I Am Baker and thought it made the perfect mix of winter and summer. You have the classic flavors of red velvet mixed with some fresh strawberries. Add a little white cake and a little whipped cream too. What a pretty layered combo! But in Tablespoon style, we wanted to shake it up a bit and make this pretty cake teeny tiny. So we've got 6 mini cakes! Whoever you make these for, they will be in love with them.
