Now this is a refreshing twist on Strawberry shortcake. I have never had raspberry Melba sauce. Can I find it in my local grocery?

Now this is very different. I love watermelon but I am not sure about if I want to eat it with cake and whipped cream. I will not know if I like it or not until I give it a try, right?
