4th of July treat

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!!!

Red velvet with cream cheese? Yum! It's looks so yummy, and then to bite into red velvet? Perfect cake!

I haven't been to a progressive dinner in years. I used to love them. Always wanted to do one at Christmastime.

Hope you stop by and link it up to Fab Finds for the 4th! http://muralmaker1.blogspot.com/2010/06/fab-finds-for-fourth-3.html

I adore your patriotic spirit. It is red, white and bluetiful!

I hope you'll stop by for my bbq on an Anthropologie inspired white tablecloth. :)
