Absolutely loved the combo of berries here, & when they're added to the maple syrup mixture, it's really great! Will admit that I opted out of the mint decoration, but served this over a plain vanilla pound cake ~ OUTSTANDING! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in Every Day is a Holiday tag]
