      OMG!!! I saw this recipe earlier when entering the contest and thought since I had all the ingredients already I would make it tonight. I had my married couple paleo friends over tonight and the 3 of us agree it is HEAVENLY!!! It so reminds me of the real thing I can’t even imagine it tasting better the old way (I made the whipped cream with a little maple syrup in it so it was sweet…tasted like the “real” stuff). It is something I will be making a LOT this summer for sure. Thanks for the awesome recipe! I’m in PALEO LOVE!!!!

      This recipe is wonderful!! I made it this weekend for a group of non-paleo friends and they all devoured it! Later on, a gluten-free friend who has had a lot of practice baking gluten-free treats came over, and was amazed by the quality and texture of the cake. As was I! It was so easy and so good. Thank you guys so much for this fabulous recipe! Even if you do not want to make strawberry shortcake, this cake recipe is a must-have!

      Wow, this is so wonderful. My friend has Celiac disease and she will really love this one. She’s a strawberry shortcake lover. How can you not be though.

      These look so yummy!! It’s too hot to bake though! Can I make these the night before serving? How should I store the shortcakes?

      Wow, this recipe is fantastic. My husband and I loved it. Did I say we loved it? The cupcake is just perfect. I had to use coconut milk for the cream and it turned out great. I can only imagine how much more delicious if I get to use the heavy whipping cream….

      I just made the shortcake portion of this recipe and they’re yummy! Spongy and light, like the ones in the store. Recipe made 8 cakes in my muffin tins.
