July 4th: Red, White & Blue Fruit Sundae

Happy July 4th Ladies & Gentlemen,

This versatile fruit, icecream and whipped cream dessert requires exactly 15 minutes to prepare or less, depending how many one needs to prepare ...

Please note: this dessert can be prepared for all national holidays, thus, all one needs to do, is change the fruit and icecream colors !

I'm a big fan of layered dishes in clear glasses (i.e. strawberry cheesecake in martini glasses, etc.). They're just the right size to serve individually for a dinner party.

I have been playing around with Verrines - amuse bouche, salad (Greek Caprese), and desserts (served with demitasse spoons).

Here's the general idea. The possibilities are endless.

Cerise: Thanks alot for the Links & Ideas

Yes, me too ... I love the visual impact of the stemware desserts or

glassware desserts ... The colors and textures in sheer view ...


Have a lovely 4th July,
Ciao. Margi.

Cerise;

The strawberry Charlotte is stunning ... I shall take a look at the recipe in more depth. Thanks.

I make a traditional British dessert called a Lime Fool, with kiwi, strawberry & white chocolate with whipped cream for Italian festivities ( red, white and green ) ... It is similar to the Charlotte & the Trifle --- which is another British dessert with layers and fruit ...

Gravy Train had prepared it. It is in the dessert section here on D.C.

Have a great 4th.
Margaux.
