Happy Independence Day!

I spent today by the pool with friends and family, cooking out and enjoying everyone's company. I prepared a few desserts, a vanilla cake and chocolate cupcakes along with some white chocolate covered pretzels. I have a few more good ideas, but I guess those will have to wait until next year but be assured they will be red, white, and blue.

Here are my 4th of July treats:

I saw a cake similar to the one I made in a magazine back in May and I wanted to make it for Memorial Day, but time got away from me. I think it worked out much better for the 4th!

Happy 235th Birthday America!


  1. Christine! Your secret cake looks awesome! Yay!! I can't believe all the things you can do! I'm ah-mazed.

  2. Wow, the flag cake is gorgeous. My son is a Marine and deploying to Afghanistan in June :(. I would love to make this for our family get together before he goes. I can't quite figure it out though.

    1. I hope your son has made it back safely and Thank you!! I didn't realize I could respond directly to you (since you were anonymous), if you still want this design. I will absolutely email you a detailed account! =D
