I used these mini kabob skewers, but you could also use toothpicks, you may not be able to get as much fruit with toothpicks.
But you’ll have more to serve so it will be just fine.

How to Make Berry Kabobs with Lemon Glaze
Just a little bit of cutting is all the prep work involved.
Slice the strawberries in half and cut the pound cake into cubes.
Then just assemble the kabobs.
The kids could even help with this part.
My kids always love helping me in the kitchen.
To make the glaze for these berry kabobs just whisk together powdered sugar and the juice of about half a lemon.
Start with half and see if you need to add more.
Some lemons are juicier than others.
You want it to be drizzle-able (yes, I make up words 🙂 ), but not too thin.
Drizzle the glaze over top of these gorgeous berry kabobs and refrigerate until ready to serve!
For such a simple dish, this one really bring that WOW factor 🙂
