Berry Donut/Doughnut Kebab Recipe

If you are looking for something fun for this years 4th of July party, then look no further!  I was thinking about what to make for this weekend and instantly thought of strawberry shortcake.  I wanted to include blueberries too, to make it a little more festive.  While creating this recipe, I realized that angel food cake wasn’t right for the kebabs, so I made a classic vanilla donut.  Instead of doing a glaze or frosting, I served Cool Whip on the side and people dunked the donuts in it! Hope you enjoy!
