Summer on a Stick: Strawberry Shortcake Kabobs

Summer on a Stick: Strawberry Shortcake Kabobs

This super easy and versatile Strawberry Shortcake Kabob recipe is going to be your new go-to treat for this summer!  I guarantee your guests will be impressed and think you spent all day on these, but they are a breeze to make!

You only need 3 simple ingredients to create these: a fresh fruit, a cake and a cream element. For my recipe I used Sara Lee pound cake, fresh strawberries and a homemade vanilla icing.

But they are so versatile and there are a million variations you could try.  In fact, you could probably make these for every get-together this summer and never make the same exact version twice!  Instead of pound cake you could try angel food cake, shortcake, biscuits, cake or brownies.  For the fruit, you could add blueberries for a patriotic theme or try raspberries or blackberries.  And for the cream element, you could use a dollop of whip cream (don’t you just love the word DOLLOP), white chocolate, a spoonful of buttercream or you could also color your icing and add sprinkles to match the theme of your festivities!

Ingredients
  • 1 package Sara Lee All Butter Pound Cake
  • 1 package package fresh strawberries
  • 1 package wooden or decorative skewers
Vanilla Icing
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar, sifted
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract or paste
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons milk
Instructions
  1. First, make the icing.  In a small bowl, heat butter until just melted. 

  2. Add powdered sugar and salt to the melted butter and stir until a paste forms. 

  3. Slowly add the milk and vanilla. Stir until mixture is smooth. Add tiny amounts of milk until desired consistency. Set aside while assembling your skewers.

  4. Cut stems off of strawberries. Slice berries into uniform size pieces that are large enough to stay on your skewers. 

  5. Cut pound cake into 2-inch cubes.

  6. Starting with a berry slice, carefully slide it onto your skewer. Alternate cake and berries. I used 3 berry slices and 3 cake slices on each skewer.

  7. Drizzle assembled skewers with the vanilla glaze. Wait a few minutes to allow icing to set. 

Tips, Tricks and Tools
  1. Instead of pound cake you could try angel food cake, shortcake, biscuits, cake or even brownies. 

    You could add blueberries for a patriotic theme. Raspberries and blackberries would also work well.

    For the cream element, you could use a dollop of whip cream, white chocolate or a spoonful of buttercream.

    You could also color your icing and add sprinkles to match the theme of your festivities!

Confession: I’m obsessed with snacks. I have been for as long as I can remember. Ask anyone that knows me for a fun fact and the word ‘cupcake’ will probably come up. I’m known to keep sprinkles in my purse because you never know when the occasion may call for them. I always look at the dessert menu before ordering dinner. For fun I love to spend hours in the grocery stores scouting new and interesting foods. I love baking, but hate cooking. And I’m so lucky that my husband and little girl love sweets as much as I do!
