Let’s not kid ourselves here, I’m the last person on earth who will attempt a homemade pound cake. Baking gives me nightmares. I will, however, buy a delicious, fluffy frozen cake and get my red, white & blue dessert on every 4th of July. Gotta love holiday traditions!
Sure I could attempt a berry cheesecake or some sort of fancy schmantzy tart… but this time of year I really just want buckets of cold, crisp fruit in my face, so please don’t make me turn on that oven! Besides, this is just so pretty, so festive, so… easy =) Simply cube fluffy yellow pound cake and layer with cool whipped cream, fresh berries, and chilled vanilla pudding.
After P and I polished off an entire bowl of trifle, a little exercise was in order. Followed by a face-plant into the most delicious watermelon of my life! The commissary was selling local NC watermelons from a nearby farm and they were nothing short of perfection. Tomorrow i’m totally buying another one.
