4th of July Cake (and more)

Happy 4th! (Well it's the 3rd today, but I feel like most people start saying Happy 4th! as soon as it hits July 1...) 

What are you doing or making for July 4th? I plan to eat a burger or hot dog of some sort, drink a refreshing beverage and wear red white and blue. It doesn't get any more American than that, does it?

Oh, and I'm also whipping up this:


Isn't it beautiful? It's a Striped Red Velvet Cake and you can find out how to make it HERE at Better Homes and Gardens. 

It looks more complicated than it is, you just make 2 Red Velvet layers and cut them in half. Then whip up some cream cheese frosting (OMG) and spread it between the layers. I love the unfinished look of the cake, it's simply gorgeous! 

Looking for something easier? How about my Red, White and Blue Mason Jar parfait desserts:



And if you need decorating inspiration for your Independence Day soiree, look no further than my Rust 4th of July styled shoot over on MomTrends! It's overflowing with patriotic flare and easy DIYs.



I hope your 4th of July is filled with food, friends and fireworks!
