Red White & Blue Mixed Berry Cake

Our very favorite Yum Yum dessert gets all adorned in beautiful red white & blue to make this festive Red White & Blue Mixed Berry Yum Yum. it is a perfect no-bake dessert for 4th of July, Memorial Day, or anytime you would like to enjoy the tasty combination of strawberry and blueberry together.

We love Yum Yum dessert here at The Kitchen is My Playground — sharing recipes starting from the classics like Cherry Yum Yum, Blueberry Yum Yum, and Strawberry Yum Yum made with fresh strawberries, to non-traditional ones like Banana Pudding Yum Yum and Pumpkin Yum Yum that’s just perfect for fall. So naturally as 4th of July approaches, it made perfect sense to make and share a red white and blue version of classic Yum Yum dessert, too. This Mixed Berry Yum Yum includes both strawberry and pie filling, and stacks up three layers of its characteristic fluffy cheese mixture rather than the normal two, to make its festive red white and blue colour scheme .

Those beautiful red white and blue stripes make it an ideal dessert to enjoy with 4th of July or Memorial Day festivities. Or hey, just enjoy it anytime that craving hits for the tasty combination of strawberry and blueberry together. Not only is Red White & Blue Mixed Berry Yum Yum fun, beautifully adorned in festive colors, and delicious, it’s no-bake and pretty easy to form , too. To get started, grab a few cans of prepared pie filling. you will need a can of strawberry pie filling, and one among pie filling.

I always use the “premium” fillings so there are more berries within the fruit filling layers, but either premium or regular will work.

Spread 1/3 of the fluffy cheese mixture evenly over the prepared cracker crust.

In total, there’ll be about 9 to 10 cups of cheese mixture. So 1/3 are going to be roughly about 3 cups. I do encourage measuring out the quantity for every cheese mixture layer so you do not get to the highest layer and not have enough mixture to hide the highest of the dessert. Then drop dollops of the strawberry pie filling everywhere the highest of the cheese layer.

Top the strawberry layer with another layer of fluffy cheese mixture, using the “dollop method” and delicate spreading. Then repeat the method with the pie filling.
