Lemon Strawberry Dessert Shots Feature 2REVISED

These babies may be small BUT they pack a powerful BAM POW KABOOM flavor punch! I love, love, love, entertaining and I love, love, love, when people are smitten with my presentation and flavor! This recipe rocks with it! AND since these dessert shots are tiny, you create portion control. Although I normally eat two or three then work it off at Zumba the next day! This dessert presents just enough magic to make this a must make dessert for your next gathering!!

Lemon Strawberry Dessert Shots

1 Box of Lemon Cake Mix + ingredients listed on back of box + 1 2.9 oz. box of lemon pudding powder
1 12 oz. round container whipped cream
1 16 oz. container sour cream
1 2.9 oz. box vanilla pudding
2 cups Strawberries (cleaned and diced)
2 cups water
1 tbsp. corn starch + 2 tbsp. water (mixed together)
1-2 tsp. red food coloring


Cook lemon cake according to the box instructions + plus add powder from lemon pudding when mixing ingredients before baking, after baking allow to completely cool
Add diced strawberries to 2 cups of boiling water, turn heat to medium and allow to cook 2-4 minutes

Add sugar and corn starch, red food coloring and stir – allow to cook an additional 1-2 minutes, turn heat off and allow to completely cool to make strawberry mixture
Add whipped cream, sour cream and lemon pudding powder (do not make the pudding) to a large bowl and whisk until incorporated to make sweet whipped cream
Let’s Layer the Dessert Shots – Cut cake into small squares (small enough to fit in your serving glasses, I used a 4.8 oz. glass), drizzle strawberry mixture on top of cake, use a piping bag to pipe sweet whipped cream on top of strawberries, add more layers if you desire and extra sweet whipped cream is optional for heightened sweetness!

    Looks great. Thanks. But, how much sugar is needed? I noticed it in the preparation, but not the ingredient list.

      Hi Natasha, you need 1/2 cup granulated sugar, my apologies, we are going to add that in right away, thanks for letting us know and have fun with your shots :O)
