The 4th of July is one of my favorite holidays, second only to Christmas. I love the fireworks, the food, the patriotism. The only thing that would make it better would be if it wasn’t in the hot summertime! (I strongly dislike summer…).
This year we went to my in-laws house because they live outside of city limits so we can do fireworks! And fireworks are a key part of the 4th for me. Some friends came over as well, and we brought our dog Oliver. It was a great gathering!
My husband grilled hamburgers and hot dogs and we had all the great stuff that goes along with those. But I was most excited about the cake I had made. I am an avid Pinterest “pinner” so you’ll be seeing lots of Pinterest things. I had seen this flag cake on there and thought it was so neat, and right away decided I wanted to attempt it. I followed the instructions from The Exclusively Weddings Blog
It was a lot of work but SO worth it in the end. I worked for several hours baking the cakes the night of the 3rd, and then spent several hours cutting, piecing together, and decorating on the 4th. I am so proud of how it turned out thought and it has given me some great ideas for future cakes I want to try.
I hope that everyone had a happy and safe 4th!
