TWD- Tender Shortcakes and Ballerina Cake

Ok, this week's TWD was a little better than last week's. A little.
I don't know what it is, but I'm not a fan of shortbread, shortcakes, etc. "Moist" is not a word I associate with such "desserts," if they may be called that. These little shortcakes were easy to make, they came together in just a few minutes. They are crumbly and weren't bad with lots of berries and whipped cream. Perhaps someone can enlighten me on why, whenever I make something like this, there's some kind of bitterness present? Anyone else have that happen?
Cathy has the recipe (and a great blog)!
And a ballerina cake:


  1. holy moly amazing ballet cake!!! Tia @ buttercreambarbie

  2. Your cake is adorable! I love shortcakes. I like that bicuity taste, though. They are easy peasy to make.

  3. Okay - now I thoroughly loved these, but I thought I detected the slightest bitter aftertaste. It was so slight I essentially ignored it, but I think I know what you mean! I don't know what it is - the absence of (much) sugar? Baking powder? In any event, sorry they weren't a favorite (but glad they were better than last week's!!) Hopefully by the end of the month we'll have a homerun!! Your shortcake looks fabulous - thank you so much for baking along with me this week!!
