There’s nothing more perfect for summertime than strawberries, so we’ve rounded up six strawberry-filled treats that are absolutely delicious. Another bonus? They’re all from businesses in Indiana that are either owned or co-owned by women.
STRAWBERRY CHEESECAKE SHOOTERS FROM MARSHA’S SPECIALTY DESSERTS & TIERNEY’S CATERING
Marsha’s Specialty Desserts & Tierney’s Catering in Avon offers mini strawberry cheesecake shooters that have a graham cracker base, strawberry filling, strawberry cheesecake, whipped cream topping, and a fresh strawberry on top. They include a mini spoon and cost $2.50 each.
STRAWBERRY CRUNCH CAKE FROM SUGARCOATED AVENUE
Alyssa Hines is the owner of Sugarcoated Avenue, and she offers a “Strawberry Crunch Cake” that is inspired by a strawberry shortcake ice cream bar. It’s a 6-inch, two-layer strawberry and white marbled cake with fresh strawberry filling and cream cheese icing in the middle. The cake is then iced with cream cheese icing and coated with strawberry-flavored crunch. You can order yours for $50, or without the strawberry filling for $45.
LIFE-SIZED STRAWBERRY PASTRY FROM GALLERY ON 16TH
Gallery Pastry Shop’s newest location, Gallery on 16th, offers a rotating variety of pastries daily, and one delicious option that you might find is a life-sized strawberry-shaped pastry filled with strawberry mousse for $10. You can call ahead to see if it’s available, and if not, you might find other tasty options like strawberry mousse croissants or strawberry-filled donuts.
STRAWBERRY CHEESECAKE OVERLOAD PANCAKES FROM SUGAR FACTORY
Sugar Factory in downtown Indy has a new weekend-only brunch menu, and it includes these decadent “Strawberry Cheesecake Overload Pancakes.” For $25, you’ll get a stack of pancakes topped with cheesecake bites, strawberry topping, white chocolate sauce, raspberry sauce, a slice of cheesecake, a strawberry shortcake ice cream bar, whipped cream, and powdered sugar. There’s plenty to share – but only if you feel like it.
STRAWBERRY BALSAMIC JAM FROM PRESERVATION
