With the Fourth of July right around the corner, I’ve been thinking about patriotic foods. Since I don’t do much decorating, I decided to make this festive red, white, and blue Berry Cake.

It’s a white cake topped with fresh blueberries and raspberries. The berries are then topped with a layer of sugar. It’s a simple, homey cake that’s the perfect dessert for a holiday dinner or for an easy weeknight dessert.

      Thanks so much! That’s exactly how my husband likes his cake – with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. =)
