Celebrating the 4th at The Commons!

The Residents at The Commons of Brightmore made a delicious patriotic treat for Independence Day!  Nothing is better to beat the heat and festive for July the 4th like our Red, White & Blue Cake.   Residents chopped berries, made pudding, and we used a butter pound cake to make this yummy dessert that can be decorated any way you would like.  We recommend you make it for your next family cookout.  Happy 4th of July!
