July 4th is just around the corner, and while we're celebrating America's independence, why not celebrate your natural gifts for making very impressive desserts? Oh, you're not a naturally gifted dessert-maker? No matter. We've rounded up 35 over-the-top desserts that are both easy to execute and patriotically themed. While these are all stunners, you can always make any of them even more festive with accessories such as sparklers, America flag toothpicks, or by plating them on plates and stands with a patriotic theme. You could also use your culinary independence to go the more-savory route. Either way, use your imagination, and be prepared to very gracefully accept a host of compliments about your stellar entertaining.
