I came across this recipe while browsing through the net , since it was long time , I am not sure from where, but the idea impressed me a lot. I made this with different flavored shortcakes but then I stuck to vanilla as the strawberries that I get around here aren’t so sweet and Vanilla goes best with any fruit so that’s why I have shared Vanilla shortcake recipe here
