Assemble The Shortcake

  • Once the sheet cake is cooled, add large dollops of the prepared topping to the cake and spread evenly. Decorate with fresh sliced strawberries.

Creators Note: We skipped the sugar on these sweet berries, but to create a more traditional strawberry sauce, toss your sliced strawberries in ¼ cup of sugar and the juice of a lemon!


      About the Author

      Wish Farms LogoWish Farms has a long history dating back to 1904, when Harris Wishnatzki arrived in Ellis Island and began to sell fruits and vegetables from a pushcart on the streets of New York City. Fast forward to 1929 – Harris purchases property in Plant City, FL establishing a buying and shipping operation, which over the next 80 years would become one of the bigger berry operations in Florida. In 2010 the Wish Farms brand was born. Third-generation owner Gary Wishnatzki continues to innovate – even now he’s leading the industry effort to develop a new automated harvester. Today Wish Farms produces strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries from a network of farms in the Western Hemisphere, though Florida is still the homestead. There’s already a 4th generation of Wishnatzkis onboard – and a fifth is coming along right behind.
