I'm excited! It's that time of year again. No, I'm not referring to the holiday sounds riding the wind or the chill in the air. I referring to the time of year when Cuties are in season! For about 100 day, beginning in late October to early November, something magical happens in the groves of California. Trees that have been working since spring finally begin to bear their fruit, and the 100 days of sunshine begins. Cuties season and that means our delicious citrus cake made with Clementine's. These juicy balls of deliciousness are purchased in bulk in this home. I eat one daily and so does my son. If you are searching for a white cake recipe for strawberry shortcake, a quick and easy shortcake recipe, then you will love our easy shortcake recipe.

We absolutely love Cuties in our household. They are great in a packed lunch and are the perfect snack for our kids. They are easy to peel, seedless, and easily fit in a child's hand. Peeling one is like opening a little bundle of spring at the tail end of fall. Your nose is hit with that sweet citrus scent, and anticipation of that first bite begins. And let me tell you, Cuties taste fantastic.

We enjoy Cuties so much that we cannot help but to share them with friends and family. I'm serious. As an example, we recently had friends over for dinner and wanted to work Cuties into the menu. We decided to create a play on the classic strawberry shortcake, and the results were nothing other than spectacular. Learn more about Cuties here: Clementine Shortcake Recipe
