I had a nice, relaxing 4th of July planned out, along with 2 simple and cute desserts.
But craziness always happens.
So let’s rename them “2 messy but yummy desserts.”
First, I made mini trifles—blueberry and strawberry cheesecake.
I decided to make them the night before the 4th, in case I ran out of time.
But it was at that time that we realized we needed to leave early in the morning, so I had to rush making them in order to get my kids off to bed.
And this is how they turned out:
Not very neat or pretty—but EVERYone loved them.
Yes, you heard right. Even my husband.
Yeah, I was shocked too.
Then on the 4th, we planned to go to a science center to entertain the kids for an hour or two.
So… after 8 hours there, we closed the place down and had to drag them out.
Yes, 8 long, exhausting hours- during which they didn’t even want to stop to eat!
So now we only had a short amount of time to eat dinner, make the next dessert, and leave to see the fireworks.
Yep, I had been sure that I’d have plenty of time to make frosting for my brownie dessert– but I had ½ hour altogether.
I improvised and had to use Cool Whip, which of course, does not hold up very well.
So this is what happened (I had to make several):
I was not happy that my desserts weren’t very pretty.
But hey, everyone loved this dessert too.
Two for two.
Wow. I can’t complain.
And by the way, we did make it in time to see the fireworks—in the pouring rain. 🙂
