    sounds good, but I don’t care for the fake store bought shortcake – will probably do it w/o it – might use cubed fresh pineapple in place of the cake

    • Ruthie says:

      That would be a delicious substitute Nancy! I much prefer homemade shortcake too but in a pinch it’s nice to have another option… thanks for the dun idea 🙂 xoxo~ Ruthie
