Looks pretty great right?  Yum.  And really easy too.  These could be prepared ahead of time by slicing the donuts and having them ready for your guests.  Letting everyone top their own "shortcake" how they like it.

  2. You had me at doughnut! What a great idea. I love new ways of eating doughnuts. I think I would be concerned about the amount of sugar added to the strawberries, but this looks like a fab dessert.

  5. That looks so good and I can't believe I have never thought of doing that! I am also a sucker for doughnuts and love strawberries so this is a no brainer for me. I bet this would work to get the non strawberry eaters to eat some!

  8. No way! I never thought of using donuts as the "cake" in Strawberry Shortcake! That looks so yummy! I am definitely picking up donuts and strawberries next time I go to the store. I HAVE to try this!

  9. These are so much fun! I love the twist on Strawberry shortcake. I'm envisioning Krispy Creams, hot off the presses. There's truly nothing better, as they literally melt in your mouth. Add a few strawberries, a little whipped cream, and dessert is served!

  11. OMG this donut strawberry shortcake looks so sweet and great especially for those who have a sweet tooth. I remember Krispy Kreme donus just by looking at the glaze. These are great conversation pieces and good desserts to be served in a children's party.
