Strawberries aren't in season, but it's still a fantastic time to enjoy fresh strawberry sweets (that is, if you can resist from enjoying every one of them straight out of their little green crates!) Slice a few of these bright berries and toss them into pretty pink baked goods like strawberry shortcake, or garnish batches of frosted cupcakes and the rims of festive cocktails.  National Strawberry Day is the perfect excuse to indulge your sweet tooth.
