Frozen Berry Shortcake

It doesn’t get much sweeter than a newborn baby. The smell of their heads (oh how I wish that could be bottled), the cute as a button coo’s and those baby feet. I melt. Every. Single. Time. Our sweet friend Jen Schall from My Kitchen Addiction is expecting her first child, a daughter, very soon. Since we can’t all be present to throw Jen an actual baby shower a few of us are joining together to throw her a virtual baby shower to celebrate! Surprise Jen!

What’s perfect for a baby shower? Cake! Any chance I can throw pink into the mix I’m going to (bet on it). If I could have made this sparkle I would have. Alas no edible glitter dust in the house. Sigh. This beauty starts with angel food cake (frozen berry angel food cake just didn’t have the same ring to it) that undergoes a slight pink makeover. It’s light, luscious and isn’t overly sweet. Since Angel Food is naturally fat free it’s practically healthy right?

After it’s baked it’s slathered with homemade strawberry preserves and a layer of frozen strawberry yogurt. We could have stopped there but why when you can finish it with whipped cream and berries!
