Quick Tip — Hulling Strawberries

The other day, I was reading through the comments for Pioneer Woman's Strawberry Shortcake Cake recipe and discovered a fun and effective way of hulling strawberries.

Use a straw!

You push a straw into the bottom of the strawberry...

and out through the top.

Ta Da!

It's not perfect every time, especially on really large berries, but did a great job overall. Try it sometime!

Here's my attempt at PW's Strawberry Shortcake Cake. It was very good, but VERY sweet, especially the icing. A small slice of this goes a long way!


  1. I love this! My kids can even help do this (and will probably love it). Alton Brown also recommends using the star-shaped decorating tip from a pastry bag set (insert, twist, extract), but I have yet to try it.

    Anyway, I found you on TasteSpotting and am writing to say that if you have any photos that aren’t accepted there, I’d love to publish them. Visit my new site (below), it’s a lot of fun! I hope you will consider it.


  2. I missed that tip - thanks for sharing! I made PW's jalapeno poppers this weekend Mmmmmm. Hope you had a fun weekend and weren't rained out!

  3. great idea about hulling out the strawberry! and the cake looks so delicious! may i have a slice?
