A few days ago I made some strawberry shortcake with mascarpone cream to celebrate National Strawberry Shortcake Day.  National Strawberry Shortcake Day is actually today (June 14th), but we just arrived in Japan yesterday, and so I thought we’d do our celebrating early while I still had access to my kitchen!
