Strawberry Dessert Cups / Strawberry Shortcake Parfaits


As Valentine's Day is here, we all have secret plans to please our loved ones but I strongly feel that love doesn't need any date and time to be expressed. You can always show your love for your loved ones by gifting them expensive and luxury items but what we do on a day-to-day basis for our loved ones matters the most. 

Love doesn't need any special occasion to be expressed. If you love somebody you can express it in a number of ways. I strongly believe that Food is one thing which is the best way to express your love and care for your loved ones. Treating your family members by making a sumptuous meal is an excellent way to express your TLC for someone.

So, to embark on this festival of Love I thought of making Strawberry Dessert Cups. This dessert is filled with the tanginess of Strawberry Jelly, creaminess of Yogurt and goodness of Strawberry Cake. You can add or subtract the ingredients as per your choice. Whatever options you choose I can assure you that it will definitely please your mind and soul.

So, let's begin with the recipe:


1. Fresh Strawberries: 20-25
2. Strawberry Flavored Cake: 5-6 pieces
3. Digestive/ Marie Biscuits: 6-7
4. Yogurt/ Curd: 1.5 cups
5. Sugar: 1/2 cup
6. Tutti-Frutti: for garnishing
7. Mint Leaves: for garnishing


1. First of all cut the cake into small pieces. Here I have used a store-bought cake but you can use homemade cake too. 

2. Take the strawberries, remove the leaves and cut them into small pieces.

3. In a bowl add the hung curd. Whisk the curd using a wire whisk until it becomes smooth. 

4. Add the powdered sugar in the whisked curd and mix it well.

5. Place a pan on medium heat and add the strawberries in it. Add a little bit of water and cook the strawberries for 3-4 minutes. 

6. Add sugar and let the strawberries cook until it turns into a jelly-like consistency. 

7. Pour the jelly in a bowl and let it cool down. 

8. Once the jelly is at room temp then take the whisked curd and add 2 tbsp of jelly. Mix it until well combined.

9. For assembling take a glass and add a few pieces of cake, then add 2 tbsp of prepared strawberry yogurt, few pieces of digestive or Marie biscuits and 2 tbsp of strawberry jelly. Repeat this process until the glass is full.

10. Garnish these Strawberry dessert cups with some tutti-frutti and mint leaves.
