As the celebrations are getting closer, it’s time to start thinking about what to serve at your 4th of July picnic or BBQ. This year we are having a gathering with a bunch of great friends. We decided to go and have a picnic in the park, and everyone is bringing their favorite dishes. My job is to come up with a dessert – there’s going to be 10 of us so it had to be something easy to make that would serve a large crowd. I also wanted it to have a patriotic appearance. After all, 4th of July is only once a year!
I came across this recipe over at Food.com and the cake seemed so delicious that I decided to give it a try. I wouldn’t want to serve a so-so dessert, so I kind of had to make a test piece for my family first. I’m really not sorry about that.
Using a cake mix, this was really easy to make and it turned out amazing! I didn’t add all the strawberry and blueberry decorations – like I said, this was a test piece and it disappeared so quickly there was no point in adding berries… But I can imagine fresh berries will make this even more delicious!

Quick Tip: This doesn’t have to be a 4th of July cake – just leave out the berries or arrange them in a different way, if you don’t want to decorate the cake with stars and stripes.
