You can buy this delicious Red, White and Blueberry Cake from Harry & David ($49.95 plus shipping). Or you can make your own.

First, Harry & David’s cake:

Made in the company’s bakery, three layers of fluffy vanilla cake are separated by strawberry and blueberry fillings and covered in rich cream cheese frosting.

The fun continues with the decoration: What look like blueberries atop the cake are actually Harry & David’s chocolate-covered dried blueberries.

We can’t imagine who wouldn’t want to receive one of these as a gift.

 

BAKE YOUR OWN JULY 4TH LAYER CAKE

It‘s easy to bake your own red, white and blue layer cake.

Ingredients

All you need are:

  • A box of white cake mix, or your own from-scratch recipe
  • Raspberry, strawberry or other red jam or preserves
  • Blueberry or other blue jam or preserves
  • Frosting (we like our cream cheese frosting recipe)
  • Garnish: fresh blueberries and raspberries or chocolate-covered dried berries, sparklers
  •  
    Preparation

    1. PREPARE batter and bake cake in 3 layers, according to package or recipe directions. Check directions to see if you need to prepare extra batter for the third layer. Cool.

    2. MAKE frosting. Assemble cake, frost and garnish.
     
    You can add red, white and blue candles and sing “Happy Birthday” to America.
