Burgers and hot dogs might be the official food of the Fourth of July, but assuming you’ve left some room, you’re going to need an equally all-American dessert. Vienna Bakery in Barrington – which has the roll hookup for those aforementioned grillables – really pulls out all the stops with its desserts, turning out a fireworks display of flavor for Independence Day. Think mini red, white and blue vanilla bean mousse cakes, white chocolate-dipped strawberries with sparkly blue sprinkles and cupcakes. But the real showstopper would be the strawberry-blueberry tart with a stars and stripes crust. We wouldn’t blame you if you felt compelled to stand up and salute this dessert.
