We had a fun Fourth of July! We started the morning with all of the breakfast bakes and topped it off with the berry trifle. Later we had swimming, a BBQ, and of course... fireworks! My boys would be perfectly happy if I only bought tanks, smoke bombs, grenades...and maybe some of those parachute men!
My sister in law brought cute red, white, & blue popcorn to eat while watching the fireworks.
I straight out copied the Glorious Treats Flag Cake.
(She is a cute food genius, I eagerly wait to see what she'll come up with next!)
I knew when I saw the cake that it would be perfect for our Fourth Of July picnic. The flag cake has been all over blogland, but it was all new to our family. The kids and adults got a big kick out of it!
Everyone sang patriotic songs and watched with anticipation as I cut into the cake. Some of the little ones had a great time guessing what was inside the cake after I told them there was a surprise!
Ahhhhh! Only regret...it's PINK!!? Shucks, I will remember to buy gel dye next time! :)
Such a great idea and it actually tasted good besides having an entire bottle of red dye added!
Hope you had a great day too!
Do you have any fun 4th of July foods that you make?
