Need a Patriotic Dessert Fast? No Oven Required? Here’s How! by Angela Chee

Need a Patriotic Dessert Fast? No Oven Required? Here’s How!

Need to bring a dessert to a July 4th party and don’t want to walk in with a store-bought cake, but don’t have time to bake either? Or having a party but running out of time? Here’s a quick way to make store bought look homemade! 

  • Start with a frozen cheesecake or angel food or pound cake. 
  • Spread the top with either whipped cream or sour cream. 
  • Top with fresh berries in a circular design. If it’s July 4th, use blueberries and strawberries for a festive red, white and blue dessert. You can also assemble them in the shape of a flag. 

So easy to do, and you look like you baked all day!
