Red + White Summer Dessert

CANADA turns 150 years old this year and you better believe we’ll be celebrating!

Fun in the sun, family + friends, great food and a few fireworks to top it all off…

Canada Day is always one of my very favourites of the year!

Now, typically we Canucks tend to be a modest bunch, but on Canada Day we can’t help but shout from the rooftops how incredibly amazing this country is that we call home.

There’s nothing I love more than seeing our little town clad in maple leaves and all things red + white…

And in keeping with that proud red + white theme, at our own little backyard celebration, I’ll be serving up these quick & simple cake skewers…

Obviously, with all the celebrating to be had, I’ll be keeping it simple with my favourite boxed cake, a few strawberries and some delish whipped topping (I used Cool Whip).

After cutting my strawberries and cake into bite-sized pieces, I simply pushed them onto some wooden skewers, alternating each piece.
