Last week, we had a blast celebrating our nations's independence with hot dogs, swimming, fireworks, and family. It was so much fun hanging out with everyone and watching the kids play together. As they get older, they are creating friendships that I hope will continue to grow.
Fresh strawberries and blueberries? Yes, please. Make it into a patriotic dessert in honor of our our wonderful nation's birthday? Of course. Give the husband his choice of dessert based on a Pinterest search? Good choice award to the hubby!
I think Trifles are the prettiest desserts. Plus they are the easiest thing to make. . . . especially when you can just run to the store and buy a frozen Sara Lee pound cake!
Pound cake + whipped cream + vanilla pudding + fresh fruit = pure deliciousness with a patriotic charm.
2 frozen pound cakes
1 large box vanilla pudding
1 cups milk (plus more to get to your desired consistency)
1 pint of heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup powdered sugar
fresh fruit of your choice.
cool whip, optional
Chop pound cakes into cubes while frozen, it's easier that way.
Combine pudding and milk with whisk and until combined.
Whip whipping cream and sugar with electric mixer until stiff peaks form. Fold into pudding mixture.
Start layering your layers: pound cake, pudding mix, strawberries, pound cake, pudding mix, strawberries, and cool whip. Top with strawberries and blueberries.
Have I also mentioned how much I love these boys?
I finished their shirts the morning of (I tend to be quite the procrastinator!). I got the inspiration from them here (thank you pinterest!).
