If you want a knockout ending to your July 4th feast, look no further. This three-layer red-and white-striped tall cake with its tumble of blue and red berries might just steal the show from the fireworks! Thankfully, it won't steal a lot of your time to make. I kept it simple with a cream cheese icing (no complicated French buttercream), easy red-velvet cake layers, and a streamlined lemony white-cake layer that does not require egg whites to be whipped and folded. Make it ahead, and you really are free to enjoy your own party.
