    Shortberry shortcake has an interesting background: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shortcake#Strawberry_shortcake

    Shortcake is a sweet cake or biscuit (in the American sense: that is, a crumbly bread that has been leavened with baking powder or baking soda). The earliest recipe for shortcake is in an English cookbook from 1588.[1] In 1602, William Shakespeare used it as a character’s name in The Merry Wives of Windsor, Alice Shortcake.

    History of strawberry shortcake dessert
    Though today’s shortcakes are usually of the biscuit or sponge-cake variety, earlier American recipes called for pie crust in rounds or broken-up pieces,[4][5] which was a variety still being enjoyed in the 21st century, particularly in the South.

    The first strawberry shortcake recipe appeared in an English cookbook as early as 1588, according to Driscoll’s berry growers. By 1850, strawberry shortcake was a well-known biscuit and fruit dessert served hot with butter and sweetened cream. In the United States, strawberry shortcake parties were held as celebrations of the summer fruit harvest. This tradition is upheld in some parts of the United States on June 14, which is Strawberry Shortcake Day. It wasn’t until 1910 that French pastry chefs replaced the topping with heavy whipped cream.[6]

    I expect this contest will bring out the east coast eaters, but due to timing it will keep others away as they prepare for the biggest show of the year.
