Strawberry Shortcake in a Jar

strawberry shortcake in a jar



My husband started working in Asia, in May, and he his home right now. During the summer, whenever he is around, we go camping. We bought a motorhome so that we can camp even when it's raining outside. Last weekend we camped close to Montreal and we visited my brother on Saturday. On Sunday we had dinner with friends we haven't seen in a while. At night we could not do a campfire because of the rain but we enjoyed our relaxing week-end.
It's strawberry season and I bought a basket last week. I like to freeze them for the winter, make jams and desserts. Sometimes I just want to end my meal with something sweet without spending hours in the kitchen baking. This strawberry shortcake was ready in five minutes. I layered genoise cake, sliced strawberries and whipped cream in Mason jars. It was a warm day and we had to eat these quickly because the whipped cream was melting. It was a delicious way to end a meal!
