This is what you do when you're avoiding doing a big sink full of dishes!
Also beforehand... I would just like to mention that this is by far the best strawberry shortcake I've ever eaten.. (which is saying a lot.) & store it in the fridge overnight and all of the juices will soak in and it is amazing. You won't regret making it for a second.
WHAT TO DO:
First stem all of your strawberries and cut them up, doesnt really matter how.
Place them in a bowl and add 1/4 cup sugar. (my sweet tooth added a little more.) stir it up and let them sit for 30 minutes, stir again. Squish them well, to a mush but I left a few chunks of strawberry, mostly for a good texture. Put a paper-towel over them and stir every ten minutes until you're ready to put them on the cake.
They should start to look something like this~
Then place the other half on top, like so~
Then cover the rest in icing, again.. lightly press over the strawberries or you'll have a mess.
It's best left in the fridge overnight, and eaten cold in the morning for breakfast. (:
Haha, but seriously fridge overnight & enjoy the next day! Or at least put it in there for a few hours to soak the juices in and make it real strawberry shortcake cake!
