Patriotic Desserts for You and Me


Happy 4th of July!

The party is over.  The barbecue was a big success!  And it didn't rain!  The weatherman kept predicting thunderstorms all day long but he was wrong.

I decided to make individual patriotic trifles in little mason jars.  I layered pound cake, fresh strawberries, creamy custard, fresh blueberries, more pound cake and a final layer of creamy custard on top.  Topped off with a bit of whipping cream (once the jar lids were removed).  Oh my ~ they were so delicious!  I love the red white and blue layered look to them.

Today is a day of celebration, remembrance, and thankfulness.

God bless America!

  3. Oh Gina, your desserts are soooo pretty and yummy looking! I made a similar one to take to a ladies luncheon recently, only I used angel food cake and lemon curd with cream cheese and whipped topping. The ladies loved it.
    Thank you for the beautiful card, which was a nice surprise when I got home! I LOVED it! xx

    1. Connie, I am so glad too. I thought things might be a bit awkward if we were all forced to stay inside. I like when everyone can wander if they like!
