This is mmm...mmm good. Very rich and creamy. The recipe originated at some fancy restaurant, but is a piece of cake to make.

This is a wonderful, creamy, rich dessert. I made it yesterday for the 4th of July (red, white and blue) and we really enjoyed it. It was easy to make. I used sour cream instead of the fancy sounding alternate. I'm glad to have found this recipe. I will make it again. It is delicious!

The recipe tasted good, especially with Cake "Veronica", but was a bit gellatin-like for my taste. This isn't bad, certainly, and it was nicely sweet and easy to make. I'll definitely make it again, but contemplate whipping the cream into stiff-peaked whipping cream, first, and then folding in the other ingredients.

Yum!!! This is sooooo good! I also used sour cream and substitutes fresh local huckleberries for the blueberries. I made this as a dessert for a small dinner party and it was a hit. Very fancy and elegant but simple and fun. Thanks for posting this recipe!
