One of my favorite things to do on Pinterest, when I am not busy planning my dream home, is looking for new and exciting dessert recipes. Food plays a major role at home. From the time we spend in the kitchen to the memories we share with our loved ones during holidays, food often defines our family traditions.

Like many, I have created a food board on my Pinterest page that is filled with savory dinner ideas and sweet dessert creations that I hope to find the time to make over the next year. Most of my “pinsperations” become creations during dinner parties and holidays. Tomorrow I will try my hand at making red, white and blue cupcakes topped with fresh fruit.(YUM!)

Here is a collection of 15 desserts ideas we found on Pinterest that may inspire you to create a festive dessert for your Fourth of July celebration!
