The kiddos went down for naps yesterday afternoon and I got to work. I am thankful for this big table because I don’t have any counter space. We were going to go to bible study and it was one of our sweet friend’s birthday.

I have never made this before but I found a recipe and had most of the ingredients in the pantry. Except the heavy cream and berries. STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE! & I added raspberries and blueberries. You can find the recipe here. I was reading the comments and I also just did 2 tsp of the baking powder and increased the shortening to 1/2 cup. Next time, I will try it with butter.

It’s an old fashioned recipe, so the cake is not too sweet and biscuit like.

I had also never made whipped cream before and I don’t think I am ever going back to store bought!
