Get your sparklers out and preheat the oven because it’s time for a festive 4th of July dessert! No matter how you’re celebrating Independence Day, these fruity red, white and blue berry cake parfaits will be the stars of the table. This recipe uses two of our best-sellers, Miss Jones Organic Vanilla Cake Mix, Miss Jones Organic Vanilla Buttercream Frosting, and lots of fresh berries, which makes for easy baking, assembling and cleaning. All our mixes and frostings are vegan friendly, so any and all can enjoy this patriotic dessert. We love cake parfaits because you can customize them to your needs. All you need to start is a sheet cake! For this recipe, we used parfait glasses and drinking glasses and used the rim of the glass to cut out circles from a sheet cake, but you can also use crumbled cake to fill mason jars for a dessert on the go.
