Strawberry Shortcake Shortcake!


I decided to make some girly goodies yesterday with my youngest toddler while my older boys were out for the day.  My favorite toys growing up were Strawberry Shortcake and Barbies.  I remember getting my Strawberry Shortcake dolls back in the late 70's when I was 4 or 5.  I collected all of them with all the accessories.  I still have them thinking I could pass them down..guess I will have to wait for granddaughters for that!:)

I thought it would be cute to make strawberry shortcake actually look like Strawberry Shortcake! It's pretty easy to make and would be super cute for a Strawberry Shortcake party or just a fun treat to make for your little girls that love Strawberry Shortcake.  I am so glad they have kept them around.  Of course I think the originals are better, but we always think what we grew up with is better..right?!

Strawberry Shortcake Shortcake

Pre Packaged Mini Shortcakes (or cut Sara Lee into rounds)
Strawberries
Whipped Cream Spray
Mini Chocolate Chips
1 Mini Marshmallow

Take the pre packaged mini shortcakes and flip them over to the back side. If the back side is a darker color then just slice it off with a knife.  Place it in a small bowl.  Cut out a nose with the cut off scraps using kitchen scissors. Cut a mini marshmallow in half for the eyes.  Place on 2 mini chocolate chips for the pupils.  We also used mini chocolate chips to make freckles and eye lashes.

For the hair you want to cut a large strawberry in half.  Slice the half and place the slices grouped together on the top of the shortcake. Then fan out the strawberry slices.  Do the same for the other side.  Take a couple of the slices and cut in half for the middle hair.    We cut another strawberry in half with a knife and then cut out little circles using a kitchen knife.  Cut a small strawberry in half to place on the top of the hat.

Spray on whipped cream spray for the hat.  Then decorate with the strawberry cut out circles and strawberry half for the top.  You can also make this ahead of time and store in the refrigerator leaving off the whipped cream.  Spray that on before you serve.  You could make them all in advance a day ahead and put them in the freezer and then thaw them out a hour or so before you serve them.
