Captain America Fruit Platter

Ingredients:

2 (11.5 oz) pound cakes, chilled
2 lbs fresh strawberries, sliced in half
1 lb fresh blueberries
1 lb fresh raspberries
star cookie cutter
wooden kabob sticks (optional)
Cool Whip (optional)




Directions:

Set chilled pound cake on its side. Cut a 1/2-inch slice off bottom layer (Watch the above video to see how this is done). Set aside larger portion. Using cookie cutter, cut out a star shape. Set aside.

Set cake on side again and now cut another 1/2-inch slice off the middle. Cut this slice into 1-inch cubes.

Cut off the uneven mound from the top and last layer. Cut this slice into 1-inch cubes and star aside.

Repeat all steps for second pound cake.

Cut back ends (with leaves) off all strawberries and then slice them in half down the middle. Set aside.

Set one of the cake stars in the center of your round party tray. 

Beginning out the outer edge, make a line of strawberries against the wall of your platter, rotating the direction of each berry.

Next, place a row of cake cubes just inside the strawberry row. Repeat with a second row of cake cubes.

Now add a row of raspberries, rotating directions like you did with the strawberries.

Finally, fill in around the cake star with blueberries. 

Top the first star cake with the second cake star.

Serve with Cool Whip.
