Tessa's Recipe Rundown...

Taste: Ultra fresh, fruity, floral, sweet and flavorful. The strawberries become almost caramelized on the grill.
Texture: I’m in love with the way the grill softens the strawberries and makes a bit of a toasty crust on the soft bites of pound cake. Match that with the luscious blueberry glaze and the light whipped cream and each bite is pure bliss.
Ease: Super easy! The most time-consuming part is actually assembling the skewers, which you can do ahead of time.
Pros: Perfectly light, fresh and colorful for celebrating the Fourth of July.
Cons: None!
Would I make this again? Yes!!

    I would have NEVER thought to grill cake, but I am totally obsessed with these idea! Food on a stick always tastes better for some reason. Pinned!
