Have you tried Strawberry Shortcake?

Tuesday, 16 June 2015

I love this cake and I bake it regularly every year when Scottish  strawberries are at their most flavourful.

If you’re not sure what strawberry shortcake is, well it is a typical American bake but is very similar to a giant British scone. What makes it so wonderful is the lashings of cream and homemade strawberry coulis, so large a slice you have to eat it with a knife and fork. We will be baking a shortcake every morning this week, but be warned, they won’t last so pop in before its gone.

Ok so Summer is taking a little longer to get going this year but we’re still enjoying making seasonal bakes and drinks at Cushion & Cake. This week our famous homemade lemonade is back (do you remember our sell out lemonade stall at the West End Festival in 2013? ) Made with real lemons and no additives, its super sweet and lovely. This week you can enjoy a glass at our special price of £1.50 to welcome the Summer. C’mon sunshine!
