OK, I think you’ve figured out that I love playing with food and working with a red, white and blue theme was just loads of fun. This light dessert is the perfect end to any picnic. Even after eating all the goodies they will still want their own cup of sweet berries and cream. This is another easy to make dish and you can make it up ahead of time and just top it with whipped cream right before serving.
