Well, tomorrow Independence Day is finally here!! For whatever reason I LOVE a festive cake during the fourth! A couple of years ago Kayli and I attempted a flag cake (the kind where you cut into it and see the flag on the inside, so fun!!) Last year I created a firework cake and this year I shared a festive cake on Instagram (@Kassarie)… Whether you’re celebrating just on the fourth or all weekend long, here are several 4th of July CAKES to whip up for a yummy and impressive looking dessert! Even though they are all SUPER easy to recreate!!!
First up, my fourth of July cake from last year… A red, white and blue Patriotic Firework cake! A cake mix, sprinkles and icing. SUPER easy!
Next, Jen of The Arizona Russums just shared a yummy recipe for a 4th of July Flag Cake! The bottom layer of this is more than just a cake… It’s a yummy shortbread/sugar cookie recipe!
Here’s a simple red, white and blue layered cake from Shannon of Rumbly in my Jumbly. So festive!!!
Just the other day Laura of The Pink Cake Plate, a fellow Arizona blogger, shared all kinds of fun 4th of July ideas on Sonoran Living, a local Arizona TV show. Included were her Red, White and Blue Cupcake cups! SO fun!!!
And another take on the patriotic cupcake cup idea comes from Katie of Dip it in Chocolate with her Patriotic Firework Cake Push Pops! The kiddos would love these I’m sure!!!
Then there’s my 4th of July cake for this year! It’s so easy it doesn’t even need a full post…. A cherry chip cake mix, blueberries in the middle, white whipped cream frosting, and red and blue sprinkles! So festive and so yummy!!! Just be sure to store it in the fridge!
So tell me friends… what is your go to 4th of July dessert? Do you have a patriotic cake or cupcake recipe? I’d love to see links if you do!!!
Hope you all have a happy and safe 4th of July!!!!
