Happy Fourth of July

See how to make these Firecracker Frills shown above.

I love a classic cake so I’m always looking for ways to add something special without ruining the simplicity of my dessert. I topped this plain white cake with fresh berries for an easy and beautiful Fourth of July cake. Since berries are in season right now, it’s the perfect solution.

Last year we created a little Fourth of July Celebration for Real Simple. You can go to Real Simple online to see more details, like the party ideas, picnic menu, patriotic pom poms and homemade firecrackers. My favorite is the watermelon on a stick. Enjoy!

Let Freedom Ring with a patriotic dessert table. Americana toppers and colorful banners are the perfect accent for cupcakes, pies and even sandwiches. Then send your guests home with their very own Fourth of July favors — firework rockets! (click on an image below to download the printables)
