I love serving strawberry shortcake. I have prepared so many versions, tweaking here and there with different sweeteners, berries, and foundations. Foundations you ask? I enjoy using angel food cake, traditional short cake, pound cake, and one of my very favorites, fresh, fluffy biscuits. I have slightly sweetened and spiked the berries which the spiking is certainly optional, but the flavor of orange liqueur is fabulous! Enjoy!
