Fun Foods For The 4th – Berry Pudding Cake

I bought this pedestal bowl two years ago and had always planned on making some sort of layered berry cake to go inside. What better this 4th of July then using some of your favorite berry’s in a fresh and light dessert! I went semi-homemade and picked up a box of organic white cake and pudding.

I always enjoy making my cakes from scratch but this was good enough for the recipe I was making. Saying this was my first attempt at ever doing a recipe layered like this I think next time I’d do a few things differently. Less pudding and cake making it a little smaller.

We plan on scooping it out and eating it in a bowl, would be a great dessert and could easily be customized to your suiting.

Berry Pudding Cake Recipe
Recipe Type: dessert
  • white cake mix
  • two boxes of your favorite pudding
  • 1 lb organic strawberry’s
  • 2 small packs of organic blueberry’s
  • Option) whipped topping
  1. Bake two round cakes and place waxed paper on the bottom of each cake. Make pudding and cool it in the fridge. I allowed my berry’s to sit in some organic cane sugar to sweeten and soften them up. Once the cakes were cooled I simply applied the layers.

    This looks so delightful!!! It reminds me of a dessert I make- strawberry/banana trifle. The only difference is I use pound cake and no blueberry’s.

    Can I come to your 4th of July barbeque? LOL.

    It’s all looking great.

    This looks very summer-y. I can’t wait every year until the strawberries are ready around here. That time seem to come and go so fast. Knowing they are farmed in our area gives me a peace of mind. Plus it makes me feel good knowing people from our community have work.

    Strawberries always make a dessert look so yummy!

    Twinkies and whipped cream sounds pretty yummy (except for all the yucky stuff in Twinkies…). I like the tip in the recipe about letting the berries sit in some organic sugar for a bit – i think that would add a nice touch.

    My MIL makes something like that, only she puts Twinkies and whipped cream inside. Sure, it’s less healthy, but is sure is yummy!!! 😉 She puts it in a dish just like that…never knew it had a name, though. LOL
