Strawberry shortcake is one of my fantasy foods. By that, I mean that I have it in my head what a perfect strawberry shortcake should LOOK like. I have it in my head what a perfect strawberry shortcake should TASTE like. The problem is that I can rarely reconcile those two in my head. I can get the right LOOK down, but it’s the taste, the texture, the crumb of the cake that evades me. I’m never quite as satisfied as I want to be.
