This dessert looks so gorgeous you won't want to slice it! Tastes just as good though. Great to take along to BBQs & gatherings.

I only did the shortcake part (used other recipes for the strawberries and cream); it was rich and yummy. I keep trying to find a shortcake recipe to please DH; he likes the spongey kind, but this was a dense, rich biscuit. Yet, he really LIKED it! And had seconds.
