This idea was inspired by a tidbit I read in the July edition of Parent’s magazine.
Last year we made fruit kabobs for a bridal shower and they were adorable, yummy and practical.
Here is my version of Strawberry Shortcake Kabobs. These would be perfect for a birthday party, bridal or baby shower, holiday get- togethers or picnics. We had them the other day as an afternoon snack.
You will need:
- 1-2 pints of washed strawberries
- angel food cake
- whipped cream
- your favorite sprinkles
- kabob skewers
Cube your angel food cake.
It does not have to be perfect cubes as your cake is likely round so some pieces will be odd shaped.
Slice your strawberries.
I needed to stretch my strawberries out, so I cut them into fourths (although the picture below only shows halves). You can simply cut them in half or use whole strawberries- you choose.
Grab your skewer and alternate with angel food cake and strawberries until the skewer is as full as you want it.
This is a fun step the kids can help with. You can have them build their own kabob if you like.
Once we’re done I like use kitchen sheers to cut the sharp end off of the skewer for safety reasons.
My kids have been known to use them as weapons. (The skewer that is.)
The kids love this step as well…. the whipped cream! Especially the canned kind.
Make a nice heaping of your favorite whipped topping on the individual plates you will serve the kabobs on.
And what makes whipped cream more fun than your favorite sprinkles?
Coordinate the colors to match the theme of your celebration.
Red, white and blue sprinkles would rock for your 4th of July party!
If you’re letting kids make their own kabobs, this is an ubber fun step!
And you’re all done!
Super simple, or what?
