I won't go into much depth about the game, but I will brief. The Strawberry Shortcake Sweet Dreams Game is a simple platforming game for the Playstation 2, (there is also a game boy advanced version of this game, probably much different. Not what I'm covering today) based off a movie of similar name. I've not seen the movie, so I'm not sure how much of the plot is shared, but the game follows Strawberry Shortcake and her friends heading to dreamland to save the day, after bad things, like strawberries not growing, start happening. The game disc, case, and manual all smell of strawberry, how this is possible is something I've been wondering for many many many years. While collecting strawberry seeds in game during levels, you can redeem them for bonuses in the strawberry garden. These bonuses include unlocking playable characters and recipes, not in game recipes, but actual recipes for you to try. I have not tried any of these recipes, that I am about to share, but I hope to try them some day haha, just haven't gotten to doing so over these 15+ years... Sharing these because I haven't seen them anywhere online haha.
here is the recipe for strawberry shortcake, I will type it out soon, as these pictures might not be the greatest haha.
