July Fourth


So, in true patriotic spirit, I attempted a few “July 4th-like” desserts. Of course, I did the classic cake July 4th cake, complete with strawberries and blueberries. Note to self: always make sure to dry the strawberries before putting on the cake… if they are juicy, they will fall, drip, and make a complete mess/unelegant presentation.


Happy July 4th!

So, I tried to be creative with the inside of the cake with red, white, and blue layers. Unfortunately in this case, the red dye didn’t turn out quite red. Apparently America’s colors are now “pink, white, and blue.”


In addition to a cake, I made these very simple chocolate and sprinkle dipped¬†marshmallows. I found this awesome recipe from Lauren Conrad‘s blog (as seen here). These were a definite hit that I will look forward to making next year!

Cheers!
