Pound Cake with Strawberry Skewers
For a super-easy red, white, and blue dessert, string cubes of pound cake (store-bought or homemade--get the recipe here) and strawberries on mid-size skewers. Assemble the skewers the morning of your event. Display them on a platter, provide a bowl of whipped cream for dipping, and scatter blueberries around the platter.
Blueberry Margaritas (for the adults!)
Serves: 6 Prep Time: 10 minutes Ingredients: 3 cups ice cubes 1/3 cup good tequila 2 cups fresh blueberries (frozen are okay too) 6 ounce can frozen limeade 1/4 cup powdered sugar 1/4 cup Cointreau fresh orange juice granulated sugar Directions: 1. Process all ingredients except orange juice and granulated sugar. Blend until smooth. 2. Dip rims of serving glasses in orange juice and then in sugar. Pour frozen blueberry mixture into glasses. Tips: *Don't dip these margaritas in salt -- the blueberry flavor requires the sweet accompaniment of sugar.
