Strawberry Shortcake With Sugar Lavender Glaze

I made my first Old Fashion Strawberry shortcake, I know these have been around forever, but I tasted one for the first time just recently. The glaze recipe was something I wanted to add to this, so I made sugar water syrup with 3 TB of Lavender leaves once it got thick I used a sieve to discard the flowers and poured this into the strawberries for additional flavor. It came out so tasty. The shortcake itself reminded me of a scone. The left over shortcake will taste great in the morning with some Orange Marmalade inserted inside.... and with my ice cold chai...heaven...

The strawberries and short cake looks so good! I can't wait for the local strawberries but it will still be another month or so here.
