Red, White, and Berry
Our neighbors had a BBQ for Memorial day and our task was dessert. I enlisted the girls to help. Well really I asked and they came running YESSSS! First we checked out Martha Stewart’s 60 photos of red, white and blue desserts.
Sara wasn’t a fan of icing so cupcakes were out…a few desserts I quickly passed over as they looked like scary projects to tackle. We decided on the red, white and blueberry trifle, but with a slight adaptation. We would make personal cups…easier for the BBQ and more fun for the girls.
Fortunately we had to double the recipe so each time the girls could take turn putting in the ingredients. Over and over again I heard as they were making their creations…this is so much fun, this is so much fun. And other than them eating the strawberries faster than I could cut them I had no complaints on all the fruit they ate during the prep!
We had one snafu when I had to run out for more cream cheese…but other than that the dessert making was a hit and the result was too.
Maddie was so proud to carry her dessert to Tini’s and both girls passed them out around the party- as any good chef would do.
