This All American Shortcake is so easy to make and the perfect dessert for any picnic! #MemorialDay #Patriotic #July4th #LaborDay #Flag

All American Shortcake is the perfect dessert to enjoy on Labor Day. My family and friends love when I make this dessert for our Labor Day gathering. I also like making Homemade Whipped Cream for the top instead of buying cool whip, but you can use either one!

If I am in a pinch and don’t have time to make whipped cream I will use cool whip. This dessert travels well and you can make it ahead of time. Just keep it in the fridge until ready to use and don’t put the whipped cream on until ready to eat.

  2. The bright colors of the fruit caught my eye! This dessert looks amazing. I’m definitely making this for Memorial Day since I already have an angel food cake in the freezer.

    Thanks for linking up at Motivation Monday!

  3. Love this! We do something similar, punch bowl cake, just add in a few layers of pudding. Either way delish and pretty!
