Strawberry Parfaits

Strawberry Parfaits
What a neat idea! These strawberry shortcakes in a glass were adapted from Bakers Royale! And the whipped cream is flavored with lemon. These parfaits are so easy to make. You can make from ready make pound cake as I did, or make your own pound cake, lemon cake, angel cake, or any cake you choose.  I made fresh whipped cream, but you can also use Cool Whip or any prepared whipped topping. I made lemon pie filling to add to the whipped cream instead of lemon curd, however you can use either. You can even choose to eliminate the lemon in the whipped cream and make a separate layer of lemon, and then the whipped cream.

Either way you choose, they are perfect for a summer’s eve, sittin’ on the porch, just enjoying life!
