By now you know how much I enjoy fruit desserts during the summer and what is more classic than strawberry shortcake?  Many people enjoy strawberry shortcake with angel food cake as the base, Cool Whip in the middle and strawberries sprinkled over the top.  I like this version, but I LOVE a true shortcake:  a biscuit that is not too sweet, slightly salty, perfectly crumbly and rustic.  On top of my shortcake, you will find my ginger-infused whipped cream, strawberry simple syrup and freshly sliced strawberries.  This sweet, salty and creamy combination is perfection in my opinion.
