All American Fourth of July Desserts
What's on your menu this Fourth of July weekend? You remembered the hamburgers, hot dogs, salt potatoes, and maybe even the perfect summer playlist, but did you bake a red, white, and blue dessert for your patriotic menu?
Break out a cake mix, frosting, and a variety of red, white and blue fruit and get to work. Check out this simple tutorial below and get in the kitchen!
Make a red, white, and blue swirl atop a tasty cupcake..with or without our nation's president on top. A simple trick: Before you load your white buttercream into a piping bag, 'stripe' the bag with red and blue food coloring to achieve a swirled look.
Want to stick to your patriotic roots but want something a little different? Why not assemble a trifle worthy of the stars and stripes. A personal favorite, I keep my recipe very simple. Layer bits of angel food cake in a bowl or trifle dish with vanilla pudding mixed with cool whip, and sprinkle in strawberries and blueberries, or red and blue fruit of your choice. Here is a similar recipe tutorial below:
