  1. Hi Lauren,

    This looks just lovely. I adore your coconut flour recipes! As you know, I cannot do almond flour, so I am always on the lookout for almond flour free treats. I can’t wait to make this special dessert. Your picture are so gorgeous too! I’m so proud of you and how far your blog has come my dear. Congratulations on all your hard work. Your posts are awesome and you offer such great information.

    Big Hugs,

    • Thank you so much for the kind words, Amber! It means so much coming from you and I will always remember how supportive and encouraging you were when I got started with blogging! I wish I could take credit for these gorgeous shortcake pictures but they are from the very talented Allison. I also can’t do the almond flour so I just love me a good coconut flour recipe. Big hugs back 🙂

  2. Hi Lauren,

    Oh, neat! I didn’t know you were in Virginia. I just had to share that I grew up in southwestern VA and currently live in Seattle. Hopefully the remainder of your trip will be a bit drier! 🙂

  3. In the most bizarre timing ever, I promised to make my roommate a cake for his birthday,which is today. He wants shortcake and I got this in my email newsletter from you today. I’ll definitely give it a try, thanks!
