One Lump or Two in your tea?

Welcome!

Today I'm having dreams of fancy pink tea parties with pastels and pretties.
Flowery quotes with shaped sugar cubes and little sandwiches.
Lovely flowers for my hair, and jewels for my fingers and ears...


"Enjoy life sip by sip,
not gulp by gulp."

 - The Minister of Leaves

Strawberry Rose Shortcake
by Cindy Littlefield

Ingredients (for each shortcake)
A shortcake dessert shell
Whipped cream
2 large strawberries
A mint leaf

Directions
1.     Fill the dessert shell with whipped cream.
2.     Wash and hull the strawberries. Slice one of them vertically into 5 or 6 pieces. Arrange the slices in a circle, tips pointing outward, atop of the whipped cream to create the outer petals of a rose.
3.     For the center of the rose, turn the other strawberry upside down and slice off the very tip. Next, make four cuts three quarters of the way down through the fruit to create a row of petals around the middle. Place the strawberry in the center of the fruit slices atop the whipped cream.
4.     Garnish the rose with the mint leaf. For the finishing touch, add a decorative border of whipped cream around the shortcake.
