It is that most wonderful time of the year when we celebrate the best summer time dessert every conceived - strawberry shortcake! Strawberry shortcake just happens to be one of my favorite desserts!
I love that tender, moist cake combined with all that strawberry goodness. It was also a pretty awesome cartoon.
