Fourth of July, Recipes

A 4th of July Dessert


This Fourth of July dessert is SO easy to whip up and easy to transport around. I love the idea of dessert in mason jars! There is a restaurant at the St. Regis Punta Mita that is on the ocean – Mita Mary’s! They serve the most delicious fresh seafood (literally from the ocean you are looking at), along with to-die-for mason jar desserts. Last time we were there we ordered four for two of us. The apple pie in a jar was my favorite :)

I was so inspired by the desserts that I wanted to create something similar for Fourth of July! You create these in individual mason jars and can keep them in the fridge until you are ready to serve them.


  • Angel Food Cake or Pound Cake
  • Blueberries
  • Raspberries

For the frosting:

  • 2 cups whipped cream, handmade or store brand
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  1. To make the frosting, use a hand mixer to combine the whipped cream, cream cheese, and vanilla. Chill in the fridge.
  2. Slice the cake into squares and add to the bottom of a small mason jar jar 1/4 of the way.
  3. Next, add a layer of the frosting then top with berries
  4. Keep layering! Add a layer of cake, frosting and top with berries!
