This was the dessert I made last year for a progressive dinner we had on the 4th with our neighbors. (I got the idea from the Barefoot Contessa).
It was super easy. I made stripes with raspberries and frosting (using a frosting bag thing)and for stars used blueberries with dabs of frosting on top of them. It was so much fun making it and my oldest son was able to help. The cake mix I used was red velvet with a cream cheese frosting, so yummy! This year I think I will try a blueberry pie!
I hope this inspires you this weekend...Have a wonderful and safe 4th!!!
