Strawberry Shortcake Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids

I was a huge Strawberry Shortcake fan as a kid.  One of my favorite Halloween costumes was a handmade Strawberry Shortcake costume I wore when I was 8 years old!  When this adorable Strawberry Shortcake dessert table popped up in our inbox, we had to share it with you.  Aracely of Minted and Vintage styled this party for her daughter’s birthday. We met Aracely and her daughter at our Beverly Hills book event. The theme was also near and dear to Aracely, as it was the theme for her 1st birthday party back in 1985. Aracely wanted desserts that represented each of Strawberry Shortcakes friends so she brought out her inner baker and created Strawberry Shortcake layer cake, mini Lemon Meringue tarts, mini Blueberry Muffins, Cherry Cuddler cobblers, Banana Twirl rainbow layer cake, Lime Chiffon chocolate dipped cream puffs, and individual Strawberry Shortcakes in handmade cupcake stands. Other sweet treats on the dessert table included yummy strawberry cake pops and a smash cake and iced sugar cookies. We love the vintage cake plates that she used to display her treats. Great job!

    I love your Strawberry shortcake party! Please tell me where I can get the Strawberry shortcake fabric from the dessert table display & the table runners??? I want these for my daughter’s birthday party in a month! Thanks, Tyndel ([email protected])

    • Hello Tyndel, I found the fabric for the table runners at Walmart a couple years ago, however I don’t think they carry it anymore because I have kept my eye our for more of this fabric. I have them available for rent if you are interested. Please email me the date and location of your event to [email protected]. In the meantime, I will get those rental prices for you! -Aracely
