#3. Red, White and Blue Strawberry Shortcake, this cake needs little explanation as anything Strawberry Shortcake is superbly yummy!!! Plus you can line up your strawberries and blueberries like an American Flag….how 4th of July are you now?
#4 Watermelon Cupcakes Cake, there is no recipe for this one BUT do not despair! All you have to do is bake some cupcakes, frost some red and some in green, and arrange them in the shape of a watermelon. You can pick whatever flavors of cake you wish as I would think a watermelon flavored cupcake would not be número UNO on my list but a watermelon shaped cake out of cupcakes is fantabulous.
If you don't have time to bake cupcakes, go to your grocery store bakery section and ask for cupcakes that are not iced. Then high tailyourself over to the bakery aisle and buy some frosting and food coloring. Easy peasy!!!
Don't forget to garnish with chocolate chips for the “seeds” or you can skip the “seeds” and if anyone asks, look at them and say “It's a seedless watermelon.” Touché!
#5 Red, White, and Blueberry Trifle, the great thing about this scrumptious dessert is that it's a light one at 169 calories per serving, so if your on a diet, watching what you eat, or cutting back on sugar….then your in luck. If you are not doing any of the above simply replace all Fat Free with Fat, and sugar free with Sugar!!!!
Whatever it looks gorgeous and will taste divine any way you serve it!!!
So there you have it, 5 Awesome Quick and Easy Last Minute Fourth of July Desserts, no matter which one you pick, it'll be a sure fire hit!!!! Have fun and have a Fabulous Fourth of July!!!!!
