We love the Edmonds one too - and it freezes beautifully - and ummm... can be eaten straight from the freezer!

It's a great addition to finger-food desserts for parties as it can be made well in advance and frozen till the day needed, brought out, placed on a pretty plate/platter, covered with plastic wrap and left to thaw, right ready to be served.

I also use the shortcake base recipe for a base for other slices, as it has a nice texture. . here are two. .

Add some cocoa and coconut to the shortcake dry ingredients, and bake as per recipe, add an icing that has lots of coconut included, sprinkle with coconut, and you have a chocolate coconut slice

Add dried fruit and some crushed cornflakes or weetbix to the shortcake mix, bake and ice with lemon icing. .

I make the Edmonds base but the top is different, had this recipe for years. dissolve 2 dstspns gelatine in 1 cup of boiling water. Pour onto 1 1/2 cups sugar. Beat till thick, and nearly set, add food colouring of your choice before it thickens. Easier to make than the Edmonds one.
