Use a cookie cutter to create star-shaped pieces of watermelon. Make sure to slice the melon thin
to make the cutting easy.
Hooray for the red,
white ‘n’ blue
If you’ve got a rectangular platter, you’ve got this dish in the bag. Use a small bowl
for your blueberry stars, then alternate stripes of diced watermelon and a
white cheese, like cheddar.
Giving a store-bought cheesecake a homemade look is
easy-peasy this Fourth of July. Grab a pint or two of blueberries, a pile of
raspberries and slice up a few strawberries, and you’re set. Arrange as a star
with a blue background, as shown above,
or create your own design.
Sparkle ‘n’ shine
For a really cute
treat that’ll be a hit with your younger cousins, load up skewers with fruit
and marshmallows to create a red, white ‘n’ blue pattern. We love the cookie
stars speared on top to mimic sparklers. Adorable!
Q: Who doesn’t love
chocolate-covered strawberries? A: Nobody! Dip your farmers market picks in
melted white chocolate first, then roll the tip in blue sprinkles. Lay on a
sheet of wax paper and refrigerate until the chocolate has hardened.
Flag cake 2.0
Not a sheet cake fan?
No sweat. Whip up a batch of vanilla or yellow cupcakes. Bake them in foil
muffin liners for a fancy touch. When they’re completely cool, frost with
vanilla icing, then arrange on a platter or cutting board in rows in the shape
of a flag. Decorate a few with blueberries as the stars, then alternate rows of
red and white stripes, using raspberries or small strawberries for the red and
shaved coconut for the white.
