Semi-Homemade 4th of July Sweets

There are only three days until the 4th, but it's not too late to plan a stunning dessert for your BBQs and bonfires. These desserts are simple and quick to make, but they can be made even easier by adding your own flourishes to bakery goodies.

Top pre-made pound cakes with whipped cream, blueberries, and raspberries.
Berries also sweeten up a traditional cheesecake.
Buy cupcakes in bulk, visit a Sam's Club or Costco to really rake in the savings.
As I'm sure you've noticed, berries are your shortcut to dressing an otherwise very vanilla dessert. Take advantage of additional savings by buying your cakes, cupcakes, and berries at a bulk retailer like Sam's or Costco.

I'll be back next week with some behind-the-scenes peeks at the dessert table I'm designing for Minnesota Bride Magazine's Best of 2010 gala.

Enjoy your semi-homemade holiday!
