Strawberry Shortcake Cups

Strawberry Shortcake Cups

Strawberry shortcakes are so good. They’re something that I haven’t had very often in my life, but when I have had them, they’ve been like heaven. More often than not, when I think of the words Strawberry Shortcake, I think of that adorable cartoon character. Yep, I’m of that generation.

These strawberry shortcake cups are going to be great for get togethers. I love anything in a cup. There’s just so much less chance of spilling it like on a plate. Go ahead and follow the link to the next page for the ingredients. The video will be on the page after.


Know what I see in this recipe? The PERFECT 4th of July BBQ treat. If you want to make it a bit more festive, add a couple of blueberries to the top. It will be absolutely STUNNING. The mason jars, if you choose to use that, will give it such a fun, summer, homey feel.  The video with the instructions are on the next page.


1lb fresh strawberries
1/4 cup white sugar
1 (3.4oz) pkg instant vanilla pudding, prepared according to package
pound cake (homemade or store bought)
fresh whipped cream
half pint Ball mason jam jars


Wash and hull the strawberries. Cut into pieces and add in the sugar. Stir to coat the berries. Let sit for 20-30 minutes.
While they are macerating, prepare the instant pudding according to package instructions. Also prepare the whipped cream.
For the pound cake, slice into 1/2″ slices and using a biscuit cutter, cookie cutter or measuring cup, cut into rounds slightly smaller than the jar you will put these in.
To assemble the mini trifles, place a slice of pound cake in the bottom of the jar. Put a spoonful of pudding on top of the cake. Next, place a spoonful of the macerated strawberries and finish with a layer of whipped cream. Repeat using another round of pound cake, another spoonful of pudding, another spoonful of strawberries and finally, top with a nice rosette of whipped cream on top. Repeat until you run out of ingredients. You may have some pudding left over but not much. Makes 6 mini trifles. Store in the refrigerator until ready for serving or up to 4 days. Enjoy!!
