Don’t worry…I’m fully aware that it’s currently September and I’m over here posting snow cones. But, to plead my case, it was 91 degrees yesterday, so I don’t feel too bad about making these yummy treats instead of sipping on Pumpkin Spice Lattes at this point of the season. Trust me. I’ll have pleeeeenty of PSL time in my future, considering we won’t see warmer temps in Utah until May next year. So I’m just going to be over here enjoying the sun a little bit longer. If you’re like me and still embracing the warmth, these strawberry snow cone printables are the perfect way to turn a boring old snow cone into the cutest little frozen treat!
I feel like a lot of people get overwhelmed when they hear the word “canning”. Granted, it can be a little intimidating if you’ve never tried it before or don’t know where to start, but I promise that it’s easier than it looks. Once you’ve nailed the process the first time around, you’ll be more willing to tackle new recipes and experiment with new flavors. And, I swear, it really is easier than it seems! 😉 And you’ll definitely want to keep canning after you taste how delicious this strawberry jam recipe is too!
But, with a birthday falling during the middle of the week, I opted for a bit of a short cut, instead of trying to make everything from scratch.
Yes, it’s nice to be able to say you made a cake from scratch now and then, but in reality, sometimes a box cake needs to come into play to save time and your sanity. Sandra Lee has this whole semi-homemade thing down, so why not?
Since we are smack dab in the middle of strawberry season right now, I wanted to create a fun cake that incorporated the yummy berries but didn’t want to make traditional strawberry shortcake….so instead, I made a layer cake incorporating the same flavors…
