Newark Kiwanis Strawberry Shortcakes
The Newark Kiwanis Club members, families and friends gather on the eve of the festival to begin preparing the strawberries for the famous Strawberry Short Cakes. They start with 250 flats of bulk strawberries. These strawberries are then washed, sliced, sweetened and packed in containers exclusively for this Festival. The sugar enhances the natural flavor and draws out the juices of the strawberries, thus creating an incredible combination when added with ice cream, whipped cream and shortcake. The thousands of delicious short cakes are prepared locally here in Newark. The ice cream that is used is made here locally by Velvet Old Fashioned Ice Cream at the Ye Old Mill. On the days of the Festival Kiwanis members and friends take turns volunteering to pile high the sweetened berries on the short cakes and serving this mouthwatering strawberry treat to the Festival goers. The scrumptious Strawberry Shortcakes has truly become one of the time-honored attractions at the Strawberries on the Square Festival.
