We recently bought a boxed cake mix for red and blue velvet cake. I made a buttercream frosting for the filling, sides, and shell border. I topped it with stabilized whipped cream. Then covered it in sliced strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries. It was the perfect balance of sweet and it was amazing!


The blue and red in the frosting on the sides was actually an accident when I was doing the crumb coat, but I liked it so I left it. :)

We are invited to lots of July 4th picnics and want to bring along something with that theme.

I just grab a pack of dessert cakes, cut up some strawberries, add whipped cream, and top with a blueberry, as shown.


You will have a simple but delicious red, white, and blue dessert for the 4th party in seconds!

Simple but very loved and isn't that what's best of all?

An easy dessert for Independence day and it looks great too!



Beat cream cheese in large bowl with mixer until creamy. Gradually beat in milk and dry pudding mixes. Gently stir in 2 cups of whipped topping.

Brush tops of wafers with water. Sprinkle 16 wafers with red sugar, 16 wafers with blue sugar, and remaining wafers with granulated sugar.

Arrange 24 wafers on bottom and up side of 2 1/2qt bowl, alternating colors of wafers. Spoon half the pudding mixture into bowl; top with layers of half of each fruit. Cover with layers of remaining wafers, pudding mixture and fruit. Top with remaining whipped topping. Refrigerate 2 hours.

This old fashioned bread pudding is a tradition by my grandmother, then mother, and now me for serving at the 4th of July cook-out we have every year for family and close friends. Enjoy!



Heat milk just until scalded. Place bread cubes in a bowl; pour hot milk over the bread. Cool. Add the sugar, salt, cinnamon or nutmeg, eggs, raisins. Pour mixture into an 8-inch square baking dish. Bake in a preheated 350 degree F oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until set. Service a dessert sauce or whipped topping. I serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

When having more family/friends than an 8-inch baking dish can serve, I make two 8-inch square baking dishes of the pudding.

On the 4th, a friend brought over this Apple Pie, hot from the oven. How special for us. We had no plans for the 4th holiday as everyone was here for Memorial Day.
