A close friend of my mine just celebrated her 40th birthday last week and I asked her what she wanted for her birthday. She asked me to make her a strawberry shortcake. I'm not much of a baker, but I took on the challenge. She happens to work up at my local watering hole. I tossed the first batch but thought the next turned out good. When I brought her the final product she started laughing and said what is this? Strawberry short biscuits? Uugh I felt completely embarrassed but I proclaimed this is what a shortcake is. Ended up teashing all of it and bought a strawberry torte cake yesterday for her. If she would have asked for a torte this problem could have been averted. I still can't believe no one knew what a shortcake was.
