Red, White, and Blue Parfaits (Gluten Free, Dairy Free)

     Who doesn't love parfaits.  They are simple, quick, and beautiful.   And if you don't want to do those, you can take the same ingredients and turn them into kabobs, with a fruit dip on the side.

     Cook up your favorite cake.  I used the coconut cupcake recipe from the  Allergen-Free Baker's Handbook.  She also has a sponge cake that rocks.  Whatever you choice, cut the cake into cubes.  Layer it a glass, with Dairy free cream cheese, and fruit (strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, or raspberries).
    Cut the cake into shapes if you want to make kabobs, add fruit, and serve with the dairy free cream cheese on the side.  I had parfait with just fruit and cream, and it was heavenly.
    Just a note here.  I really love coconut, so I added pieces of coconut to my cream cheese.  Hence, the reason my cream cheese looks chunky here.  If you click on the dairy free cream cheese link, you will see that it actually comes out creamy and smooth.
