A Quick July 4th Dessert
This recipe is such a fun and festive dessert to serve at your next Fourth of July party! To cut time by more than half, I purchased store-bought pound cake to make this dessert.
Ain’t no shame in using short cuts when your hosting guests and time is not on your side! No one will care that it’s not ALL homemade, I promise.
The important part is that you spent the time (minimal time), putting together a unique dessert that no one else has had before!

Red, White & Blue Pound Cake Sticks
If your grocer sells Entenmenn’s Butter Loaf Pound Cake, GET IT! It is awesome. Moist, delicious and perfect for making quick and easy desserts on the fly like these Mini Angle Cakes with Berry Syrup.
If you cannot find this brand, you can certainly get any other pound cake as long as it’s in a LOAF. Worse comes to worse, make a boxed pound cake at home! It is still easy and will come out even tastier.
Once you have your loaf of pound cake, you will want to slice the cake into 1″ slices. Then trim off the “crust” so you have a pretty white pieces of cake. Finally, cut each slice again but this time, in half. If the cake you have is larger, you may want to cut each slice into thirds but you be the judge!
When you have your sticks, you’re ready for dipping!
Another option that would be SO festive and perfect for the 4th of July holiday would be to cut your cake into STARS! Grab any star cookie cutter and cut out as many stars as you can from each slice. This would be such a creative idea that screams ‘fourth of July’!
