Call it shortcake. Fine. Whatever makes you happy. But you know it looks like a biscuit. A sweet biscuit with strawberries and whipped cream and almonds.

This was the scene at a wedding I recently attended. In lieu of cake, the bride and groom chose to serve this abundance of fabulous flavors and textures. Brilliant.

So how was the biscuit . . . er . . . shortcake?
Delicious. Tender and sweet. The strawberries were served in a light syrup that was absorbed by the biscuit and brought the whole dessert together.

What would you do differently?
I would think of it first. Kidding! I love that this bride and groom thought beyond the traditional wedding cake and did things their own way. It was a beautiful celebration of two special people and the shortcake was just a bonus.
