MY PRIVATE NOTES
RECIPE MADE WITH LOVE BY

Have been making this since 96, and always dissappears fast, and is a great presentation, and delicious. Wish I could take a picture, If you start with 1 raspberry in center and then circle of blueberries, followed by circle of strawberries, tips out and then blueberries inside the space between the strawberries and rasperries next and repeat it looks spectacular! Hope that makes sense.Reply
