Strawberry shortcake has been a favorite dessert of mine since I was a little girl. It’s one of the most comforting and simply desserts you can make. IMO.
So to celebrate this decadent classic on it’s national food holiday, I made Strawberry Shortcake Dessert Sushi.
It was fun to get creative, and I made two different varieties; battleship and nigiri.
I use pound cake as my base, and as battleship has the same shape as nigiri I cut all of my pieces the same size.
I then take the pieces that will be used for my battleship strawberry shortake sushi and wrap them with fruit roll-up.
Sliced and diced strawberries fill half of the top, and the other half is filled with whipped cream.
For the nigiri I simply top my rectangularly cut pound cake with sliced strawberries laid out flat, and then take a strip of my fruit roll-up and wrap it around the middle.
For the fun of it, I also add some whipped cream to the top of my nigiri pieces as well, though I’m sure you could serve some on the side in a little sauce bowl for dipping and it’d be just as fun.
I hope you enjoy National Strawberry Shortcake Day as much as I [and my family] did and try out this simple and fun dessert sushi recipe.
