Tropical Shortcake

Tropical Shortcake

A couple weeks back I shared a frantic post on Facebook asking for dessert ideas.  You guys were awesome in sharing and getting my creative juices flowing so THANK YOU!!  I’ve also got a few recipes I wanna try from you.

Before that all happened I was preparing to have company over.  Dinner was covered and I just hadn’t given dessert much thought.  I know, weird.  Usually it’s the first thing planned and everything else revolves around it.  I must have been feeling especially tired that day.  Needless to say I waited until the last minute, realized I had no butter, I did not have a back up brownie mix, I was low on eggs, AND I had like an hour to figure it all out.  super.lame.  Shouldn’t there be some fairy godmother of desserts that saves you from your misfortune?

Since there isn’t a fairy godmother of desserts and I do work rather well under pressure I started scheming.  Out of nothing can come something.  Or whatever.  Tropical Shortcake was invented out of frozen fruit, extra angel food cake and some no bake cream cheese mixture I whipped up.  Note to self: allow the cream cheese to soften a bit more before mixing cuz lumps of cream cheese ain’t so pretty to look at.  Tasted good though.

Despite tiny little pebble sized cream cheese in the whipped topping the dessert turned out so fantastic I wanted to share it.  Think outside the box and use whatever frozen fruit you have on hand to create your own new flavors.
