This 4th of July cake is also a great patriotic cake for those countries that have red, white, and blue flags! The cake’s not just made for the USA!

I love our country and am always excited to celebrate the Fourth of July and watch the beautiful fireworks explode in the sky while an audience spread out on chairs or blankets ooooh and awwww at the spectrum of colors daintily spraying out like a big bouquet of flowers. It truly does get you in the patriotic mood.

The last couple of years we’ve been going to my friend’s neighborhood where she and neighbors put on a huge display of food, entertainment, music, and an amazing fireworks show. Everyone brings fireworks to share and the men live out their dream being pyromaniacs as they light up hoards of fireworks that seem to last forever. It’s really relaxing and even comical watching the men strut their stuff. Once all of the fireworks are lit, there is a standing ovation and even a sigh of sadness as the evening fades and the celebration ends. But we carry home the patriotic spirit in our hearts!
