This yummy strawberry shortcake triffle dessert is one of those great treats that feed a crowd. It is my go-to summer dessert because it is so light and always a favorite!

I don’t know about you, but summer rocks my socks. One of the best things that the warm weather brings is the scrumptious food! Party food in fact. Grub for your potluck, BBQ, family gathering, and more.

This yummy dessert is one of those great treats that feed a crowd. I love using fresh fruit whenever I can in my desserts and one of my favorite recipes is this Ultimate Strawberry Shortcake. It’s divine and EVERYONE loves it!
