MMM.. For every birthday I had in Venezuela I would always have strawberry short cake (sans the jar)..Recipe for the jar version: http://blogs.babble.com/family-kitchen/2011/05/06/strawberry-shortcake-in-a-jar/
Strawberry shortcake parfait: 1 large angel food cake (plain), 2 pkg fresh strawberries( frozen is fine), 1 tub of cool whipped topping, strawberry mousse. Make strawberry mousse according to recipe, Blend one pkg of strawberries to make puree (I used pulse for this), and the other pkg cut strawberries in half, put aside. Cut angel food cake into three sections. Layer bowl first with one section of angel food cake, (w) topping, strawberry puree, mousse, and a layer of cut strawberries.
