With a color that’s decidedly seductive and a shape that’s remarkably heartlike, the strawberry is a veritable symbol for l’amour. This Valentine’s Day, we urge you to toss the tired box of chocolates and try the berry as a luscious alternative. Use a bunch to make the irresistible Strawberry Shortcake shown here for a fresh way to show your love on Valentine’s Day.
This easy-to-assemble (only 15 minutes!) stack of sweetness is featured in the delightful book Cake Ladies: Celebrating a Southern Tradition. The book itself is a valentine to the culture of cake making and the women who keep it alive in kitchens across the South. Aptly enough, Cake Ladies celebrates baking as a gesture of love. So get cooking! The most romantic day of the year will soon be here….
