4th of July Desserts Reviewed - Part II of the Review This 4th of July Menu
The 4th of July desserts are not only delicious, but they are quite colorful.  They are a great way to include red, white & blue in your Independence Day menu. 

My family loves desserts and the 4th of July recipes provide a great opportunity to play in the kitchen while preparing unique treats.

Of course, many of the cakes and cupcakes require food coloring, but there are other ways to create beautiful 4th of July desserts using fruit to add the desired colors to the holiday meal.

There are lots of spectacular dessert options created just for the 4th of July celebrations.  Join me today as we explore and review a variety of recipes that we believe you and your family will also enjoy.  Choose the one that best suits your families dietary needs and culinary preferences.  

4th of July Dessert Recipes in Red, White & Blue

Cakes & Cupcakes 

All three of these recipes are delicious and decorative for the 4th of July.  None of these cakes or cupcakes require food coloring to create a colorful presentation.

Fruit Desserts

Sometimes all we really desire is a easy to construct fruit dish to serve for dessert. 

Special Colorful Treats

These colorful treats require a bit of advance planning and preparation, but they are well worth the time and trouble.

  1. How to choose, how to choose! You found some really unique red, white, and blue desserts, Cynthia. They all sound yummy and would look good on anyone's 4th of July picnic table. I've never seen a Watermelon Pizza before; that is super-clever! While I love fruit, I tend to lean towards gooey-sweet, so my thoughts are lingering on the Strawberry Blueberry Cheesecake Icebox Cake. I'm just glad these desserts don't have to be limited to serving on July 4th. Hope you and yours have an enjoyable, safe, and yummy holiday weekend!

  2. Thank you Susan! I hope you and your family also have a wonderful 4th of July! I find it very interesting that your eyes landed on the Cheesecake Icebox Cake. That was my mother's choice too. She prepared it for our family last year and it was delicious.

  3. I should not have come over here right now when I am hungry! It all looks great but for me it's gotta be the white chocolate fudge! Yum, the 4th of July is going to be yummmy!

  4. Eeiny meeiny, minniey, moe......Oh I just think I'll have them all....I was never too good at choosing. They all really do look lovely and delicious.

  5. Lots of yummy looking deserts! I love the way strawberries and blueberries add to the festive look for the holiday. I'm making a cheesecake parfait with layers of cookie crumbs, cheesecake mix, strawberries and blueberries! Thanks for all the great ideas and for the link to my patriotic photos post.

  6. With such a fun choice of blue and red fruit, having a Patriotic dessert for the 4th of July is easy-peezy! Thanks for including such delightful (and delicious) suggestions for our holiday menu. Happy 4th of July to you. :)

  7. What beautiful and delicious dessert ideas!

  8. Oh my what wonderful choices, may mouth is watering for sure, and now I need something sweet.
