Strawberry Shortcake Kabobs
You couldn’t pick an easier dessert.
This is an amazingly easy dessert for a large group. You can assign it out to volunteers to make ahead if you want. It’s easily portable. Or, you can make it at the event. It comes together very quickly.
You can use any luscious fruit in season. These strawberries caught my eye.
You can use pound cake, like I’m doing here, or angel food cake or even brownies if you like chocolate. I strongly prefer pound cake over angel food cake because it holds together better when cut into cubes. Have fun with the drizzle – use white chocolate (my favorite) or try milk or dark chocolate. (Sprinkles could even make an appearance!) This is a great recipe to recruit kids or teens to make. They have a ball with it!
It doesn’t get any easier.
This recipe is perfect for feeding a crowd. You can assemble it in the morning, and refrigerate until ready to eat. If you want a small amount, use 1 pound cake and 1 pound of strawberries for 18 kebabs.

This lovely light dessert is quick and easy - and delicious! It can be made ahead too!
- 3 Pound Cake (48 ounces total)
- 3 pounds strawberries ~18 strawberries per pound
- 54 wooden skewers
- 1 (11 ounce) bag white chocolate chips
Cut stems off the strawberries and cut the strawberries around the middle into 3 sections of uniform size.
Cut each pound cake in half the long way. Slice each into thirds also running the long way. Cut each section into 6 cubes. This will produce 36 cubes per cake.
Line up a strawberry section, cake cube, strawberry section, cake cube and strawberry section on the cutting board.
Run a skewer through the center of the strawberry/cake cube line-up.
In a medium glass bowl melt the chocolate in the microwave for about two minutes stirring every 30 seconds.
Once fully melted, spoon it into a large plastic bag and cut off a small tip of the corner.
Drizzle the white chocolate over kabobs and refrigerate at least 10 minutes to set.
NOTE: Basically you need 1 pound of strawberries for each pound cake. 1 pound cake cuts into 36 pieces of cake (18 kabobs). There are typically 18 strawberries per pound, cut into thirds for 54 pieces. 3 strawberry slices and 2 cake cubes per kabob. You can also use Angel Food Cake.
