Strawberry Shortcake in A Basket

I recently purchased a Nordic Ware Shortcake Basket cast aluminum pan and was eager to try it out. 

I decided to try a pound cake mix from a box. I didn't want to spend tons of time on the mix especially if the pan was difficult to use or impossible to get the cakes out. 

It turned out pretty easy to work with and here's my strawberry shortcake in a basket.

The basket pan was easy to use and I followed the baking tips and lightly coated the pan with oil and then flour. 

I was making the strawberry shortcake for my grandsons and they loved it. I didn't use any extra sugar on the berries, instead I used a dollop of cool whip. 

The tiny bud vase was a gift from my daughter. The rose buds are from my garden. I have also used azalea buds in the vase. The bird nest is a separate piece and there are other seasonal pieces to use in place of the nest. 

If you have time to stop over, I can share my strawberry shortcake in a basket with you. 

When we ran out of strawberries, we tried bananas and cool whip.

Thanks for dropping in for another day of Life in Kentucky - Judy.
