I wanted something simple and light to serve for dessert to our dinner guests. I placed some pound cake and fresh strawberries onto skewers then made homemade vanilla bean whipped cream. Each person was served a skewer and a side of whipped cream for dipping. This dessert took less than 10 minutes to make and was loved by all – adults and children. A quick and fun dessert can’t be beat!Strawberry Shortcake Kebabs with Vanilla Bean Whipped Cream: Recipe and photos by For the Love of Cooking.net
