Don’t you just love no-bake desserts and meals when it’s hot outside? It’s starting to get warm here and I couldn’t be more excited since it was such a long winter. With Memorial Day, Fourth of July, and lots of summer BBQs around the corner, these Mini Grilled Strawberry Shortcake Skewers are the perfect dessert for a party, potluck or even a casual family dinner.
You can prep these skewers in about 10 minutes. No baking needed for these Mini Grilled Strawberry Shortcake Skewers thanks to Sara Lee All Butter Pound Cake. They did all the baking for you. I LOVE how much time that saves not having to bake a cake! Let’s make some Mini Grilled Strawberry Shortcake Skewers…
To start, slice the (thawed) cake into 8 slices, then each slice into 8 cubes.
Meanwhile, place some wooden skewers into a small bowl of water for about 5-10 minutes. I like to be on the safe side and not start a fire on my grill with dry wood.
Skewer the strawberries and cubes of cakes and preheat your grill to medium-low. Grill the strawberry shortcake skewers for about 1-2 minutes per side or until the cakes is toasted and golden brown. Serve with some whipped topping or sweetened whipped cream for dipping.
