Fourth of July tip of the day!

Happy Monday dear readers! How are you holding up post-storms? I hope everyone is okay! I have a tip for you today in order to bring sophistication and fun to your 4th of July picnics. Nothing says Americana like red, white, and blue, so why not try your hand at a no-bake cake (see some of my earlier posts for recipes) and decorate it with delicious fruit? Strawberries and raspberries, blueberries, and a cool whipped topping make your dessert presentation the star of the show. The often-done idea is to create an American flag on top of your cake, using the berries and cream, HOWEVER, why not add a level of elegance by decorating your cake with fruit, but in a unique pattern? Perhaps beautifully patterened stripes of raspberries and blueberries, or circles or swirls, also patterened to perfection? Use your imagination and don't be afraid to make it look different. It'll be beautiful and delicious because it comes from YOU. Happy baking!
