Overly polite Angel Cake seemed to take the "Angel" portion of her name a little too seriously. Never missing an opportunity to say "please" and "thank you", she even went so far as to play the harp and wear a halo-shaped headband in her hair. Angel Cake's hair was often depicted as a lavender color in print and on television, but the dolls and toys made by Kenner had white hair. Angel Cake imagined herself as having a weight problem, seeing as angel cakes are supposed to be "light", but was also seen constantly eating candy and ice cream. Her direct quote: "...If you don't think about it, the calories don't count." She adopted her pet skunk Soufflé as part of the action of Strawberry Shortcake's "Pets on Parade" adventure, and quickly put him on a "diet" as well. she is very moody and gets mad at the littlest things but she is overall sweet. She has blond hair and is very sweet.
Ginger Snap is an all-new character for the 2000s. With updated characters Orange Blossom and Angel Cake, Ginger Snap completes the nucleus of Strawberry Shortcake's ever-expanding circle of friends. Ginger Snap is an expert inventor, and purveyor of every known kind of cookie. Her massive gingerbread factory in Cookie Corners combines these two interests neatly.
Like the 1980s character Raisin Cane before her, Peppermint Fizz is an argumentative trouble-making brat. Conniving, manipulative and greedy, she epitomises every bad quality that a child might possess. But still Strawberry Shortcake sees whatever good might lurk beneath the sour surface, and does her best to cultivate goodness in her. Deep inside her though, there is still some good in her. Her pet is Cola Chameleon. For series 4, Peppermint Fizz's negative traits were toned down.
Rainbow Sherbert is a captian of her ship Rainbow float.
Another of Strawberry Shortcake's new friends from her trip to Big Apple City, Lemon Meringue is a primping beauty known around the city as a famous model. When pressed for details, however, she admits that her "pictures" are mostly owned by members of her immediate family. It seems unlikely that a glamorous girl such as Lemon Meringue would choose a frog for a pet. But it is actually because of the fact that Frappé in no way competes with Lemon's beauty that they get along so well.
Coco Calypso is good friends with Strawberry Shortcake and her pals, but she lives on Seaberry Shore, a beautiful tropical beach far removed from her Strawberryland friends. Upon the girls' discovery of another, secret resident of the area, Coco found a new friend, and was not so lonely for companionship between Strawberry Shortcake's visits. Coco Calypso's pet is Papaya Parrot. Her best friend is Blueberry Muffin. Coco has dark brown hair and dark brown eyes. She is a very adventurous little girl. She is also friends with Tea Blossom.
Seaberry Delight lives in a shell-shaped cottage in a secret grotto off of Seaberry Shore. A fantastic swimmer, Seaberry loves the water so much, she was mistaken for a mermaid when first encountered by Strawberry Shortcake and her friends. Once unaware of each others' co-existence on the beach, Seaberry and Coco Calypso have since become fast friends.
