Just in time for the holiday festivities, this Very Berry Swiss Meringue Buttercream Cake is just what your weekend celebration needs.
Tons of red and blue berries make it patriotic without looking like you tried too hard while the homemade vanilla cake layers with vanilla swiss buttercream will suggest otherwise. Minus the quirky swiss buttercream, this cake is really NOT that difficult.
I didn’t really know what I wanted to make for tomorrow (it’s the Fourth of July in case you’ve been hiding under a rock) but participated in the Sprouts Grand Opening Celebration over the weekend and strawberries were 98 cents for 1 lb container. Ninety eight cents. Holey moley.
And do you know what strawberries are in addition to being on serious sale?
Red. Strawberries are red.
And the American flag is also red, too. Into my buggy they went along with their dear friends Miss Blackberry and Mr. Blueberries.
To say that Sprouts was a zoo would be an understatement. I was excited for Brian to experience it, otherwise, we probably would’ve waited a week or two. But we braved it and I came home with ALL the berries.
Sidenote: Why didn’t any of you Sprouts fans tell me they sold pet products?! I nearly had a small heart attack when I spotted my dog’s beloved Honest Kitchen and the digestive enzymes I pay $5 more for and sometimes aren’t available at the specialty dog store. So excited, people. So excited.
And while we’re wrapping up our Sprouts chat and you are forgiving me for derailing the conversation with pet products, let me share how to make your trip more pleasant:
Download the Sprouts app prior to your visit.
Listen to me when I say you’ll want to utilize the app. There’s coupons and rewards plus you’ll have the ability to select your store and view the sales ad for that particular week. Remember from this post that you’ll want to shop on Wednesdays if you can because it means the ads overlap.
The app will help you know what’s on sale rather than bumping into people while reading the paper flier (ask me how I know this). You’re welcome.
Let me know if you’ve ventured over there and what your initial thoughts are!
Today’s post was sponsored by Sprouts Farmers Market but I’d still be excited to welcome them even if it wasn’t! You can visit their website here.
