inspiration for independence day entertaining: desserts

Desserts are my favorite thing to bring to a party because even if they don't look like the picture in the cookbook, as long as they're yummy fellow party-goers are happier.  My ideal 4th of July picnic dessert includes summer berries!  Here are a few options I'm considering for this year's hometown festivities:

1. Red, White, and Blueberry Trifle from Martha Stewart
2. Blueberry Crumb Cake from The Pioneer Woman

3. Strawberry Cake from Edible Moments (originally adapted from Martha Stewart by Two Peas and Their Pod)
4. Strawberry Icebox Pie from Martha Stewart

5. Red, White, and Blue Cheesecake Bars from Recipe Girl
6. Blackberry Swirl Pie by Krista Merriman from Better Homes and Gardens

Which of these berry desserts do you think I'll be making for tomorrow's picnic?  And is Martha Stewart the queen of berry-based desserts or what?

Not quite what you're looking for?  Last week one of my favorite food blogs, Mel's Kitchen Cafe, compiled an awesome post with 45 Barbecue Recipes, and Claire at Inspiring Pretty did a round-up of 4th of July Recipes.
