Mel’s Kitchen Café – This is such an easy way to make a great looking dessert and it’s a fun one for kiddos too! As Mel explains in her post, dessert kebabs can be done with any fruits and dessert items, but what a patriotic combo to celebrate the 4th of July! I will definitely be making these!
Nutmeg Nanny – Ok folks, this dessert is so gorgeous and will make any partygoer think you slaved away in the kitchen…but I’ve got three magic words for you: No. Baking. Required. I love the way Brandy cuts the strawberries to look like stars – so creative! If you don’t have time to bake a dessert this holiday, or just want one that looks and taste wonderful, definitely give this one a try! Follow this blog on Twitter: @nutmegnanny
Green Acres Hobby Farm – These are really cute party snacks to make, especially for the kids! You make them ahead of time and just keep refrigerated before serving. I think using Mason jars would be a nice substitution too!
Desserts for Breakfast – This trifle is gorgeous and I love how Stephanie swaps out the typical sponge cake for chocolate chip cookies – one of her definitions of Americana! Follow Stephanie on Twitter: @shihbakes
Bakerette – This cake is so festive and, according to Jen at Bakerette, it’s super easy to make! All you need is cake mix, food coloring, frosting and sprinkles and you have a beautiful cake that screams America! You can of course make your cake from scratch, but we all know how busy we get on the holidays! Follow Jen on Twitter: @ramblingsbyjen
