My Version of Strawberry Shortcake

This was an impromptu dessert I made. I had leftover cake scraps from my cake in a jar recipe and thought this would be a great use.

It was!

When I thought about making this, I considered myself lucky to have fresh strawberries and heavy cream in my fridge already waiting for me.

I sliced the strawberries and macerated them in a bit of sugar to create a sauce that could soak into the cake. I whipped the fresh cream with some sugar, vanilla extract and a splash of Grand Marnier to make a luxuriously sinful accompaniment to the strawberries and cake.

I don't think anyone would guess that the base of this dessert was born from leftovers.
