This year, we spent the fourth of July with family and friends in Minnesota. Our wonderful hostess, Aunt Martha (not Martha Stewart, though she is just as creative and inspiring), elevated my red, white, and blue jelly poke cake with whipped cream frosting on a beautiful cake pedestal. The cake itself is served cold so it is a nice refreshing treat on a hot summer day. Here, I just did a simple decoration of alternating blueberries and strawberries. Next to it, you can see the result of poking then drizzling the cake with the red and blue jello.
