I love EVERYTHING about the 4th of July! Christmas is great, Thanksgiving is yummy, but the 4th of July takes the cake! I love the small town patriotic celebrations, the watermelon, the backyard barbecues, and just being with the family! Last year I made a fun Flag cake, I found the recipe over at 17 and Baking (A great blog if you are not familiar with it). She gives a great tutorial, this was the first layer cake I EVER made!
The outside is very simple... No those are not patriotic spiders they are fireworks! I made a simple template out of cardstock and sprinkled bright colors sprinkles! The cake looks great if you can get past the spider part!
But cut the cake open.... and you have OLD GLORY! So cool! This cake was a huge hit! The kids loved it, and it was pretty delicious! If you want to make one of your own go HERE for the complete tutorial!
I like to LINK up to these fabulous parties!
