FF Character Corner - Lenna!
http://i.imgur.com/hqmMopC.png

Welcome one and all to the Final Fantasy character corner. What we will be doing here is taking characters from Final Fantasy and finding real world stuff inspired by them. So get out your wallet and your oven mitts and send both of them to me because I like those things! And while you're at it, check out some of this nifty stuff inspired by Final Fantasy V's Lenna, or Reina, whichever you prefer!


Strawberry Shortcake!

When I think of Miss Lenna, I can't help but think of that pink hair of hers, which reminds me of strawberries. Yes, I know they're red, but they always have such a pleasant colour in desserts, I find. So I found a Strawberry Shortcake recipe here (http://allrecipes.com/recipe/8201/strawberry-shortcake/), if you're feeling the sugar cravings.

You will need:
3 pints of fresh Strawberries
1/2 cup white sugar
2 1/4 cups of all purpose flour
4 tspn baking powder
2 tbsp white sugar
1/4 tspn salt
1/3 cup shortening
1 egg
2/3 cup of milk
and 2 cups of whipped heavy cream

You will then need to get in that kitchen and use these ingredients to make a dish!
1. Slice strawberries and toss with that first 1/2 cup of sugar. Set that aside. Just put it off to the side!
2. Preheat that oven to 420 degrees F. Needs to be hot like that fire ship. While that's doing it's thing, grease and flour an 8 inch round grease pan.
3. Combine the flour, baking powder, 2 tbsp white sugar, and the salt. Cut the shortening in until the texture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a nice hole in the middle, like a strange meteor just crash landed in to it, and add the beaten egg and milk. Mix until just combined.



Hang tight guys, we're almost there. Soon we will be full of delicious cake!

4. Spread the batter in to that pan you greased just a little bit ago. Bake at 425 degrees F for 15 to 20 minutes. Make sure it has that nice golden colour to it, like Krile's hair. Let it cool partially in the pan on one of those nifty wire racks.

5. Now cut your beautiful cake in half to make layers. Put strawberries in the middle and on top, and top it with some delicious whipped cream. Consume! And that's how you make yourself a yummy Lenna inspired cake!
