Our 6 Favorite Patriotic Desserts

It is fun serving red, white, and blue desserts to children on patriotic holidays like the upcoming Labor Day holiday. These are a few of our favorite recipes we have posted for Memorial Day, the 4th of July, and Labor Day so you can choose which to make for this upcoming Labor Day Weekend.

Patriotic Pound Cake

This is easiest way to make a patriotic dessert for Labor Day. I just bought the ingredients at the grocery store and assembled the cake rather than baking it from scratch. If you want to make a pound cake and the blueberry and strawberry fillings yourself just Google the recipes. See how I made it by clicking here.

Layer Cake

I made this layer cake with Duncan Hines limited edition cake mix called Summer Velvets. I used the blue and red velvet cake mixes so this cake is double the size of a regular cake. I doubled a typical cake buttercream frosting recipe as well. Just cut the frosting recipe in half if you are making a regular sized cake.

Ice Cream Sandwiches

The children I care for and I made sugar cookies to make these ice cream sandwiches. Decorating the cookies with red, white, and blue sprinkles made this a patriotic treat. Allow the children help with every step of baking. Let kids help collect the ingredients, measure, mix, and decorate the sugar cookies.

Patriotic Parfait

Layer Vanilla Greek Yogurt with blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries and store in a mason jar for a quick and easy breakfast or snack for my Nanny Kids. When serving, open the jars and sprinkle granola on top of this patriotic yogurt parfait.

Cake Roll

Sponge cake is quick and easy to bake. To speed up the process, while the cake is baking, whip up whipped cream and slice the strawberries. Strawberry slices are up to you, smaller pieces will help the cake roll easier. Add some blueberries to make this cake roll a red, white, and blue patriotic dessert.

Angel Food Cake with Berry Compote

Summer is berry season, making it the best time to make this Berry Compote. It is so easy to make and it is absolutely delicious. Not only does it go well with angel food cake but I use the Berry Compote on pancakes or with plain Greek yogurt. While fresh berries go well with desserts, breakfasts, and snacks just heating up the berries make the berry flavors divine. Click here to see how to make one of my favorite summer desserts.
