Independence Day Food

It’s Independence Day in the USA!  I hope all of you in the States are celebrating with good food, good friends / family and some fireworks today. Some of you celebrated Canada Day earlier this week much the same way I presume. I live in the US, and as a fan of Pinterest, I love looking up all the 4th of July themed food creations that I probably won’t make but would love to consume (like the treats in the photo below). Although, the cupcakes look like something I could tackle…

    Hi Amy,

    Happy Fourth to you. Great pictures! Those treats look as delicious as they are artistic. Not a national holiday, but my grandmother used to bake a cake in the shape of a lamb for Easter. She’d frost it with vanilla icing then sprinkle on shredded coconut. Almost too pretty to eat. Almost. Lol. I do like the red, white and blue rocket popsicles for the Fourth.

      Hi Mary – that cake sounds really good! My mom used to always make us a cake in the shape of a bunny at Easter. I love traditions like that!

    Happy 4th! Actually, Mary’s grandmother’s cake sounds like so much fun.

    I picked this week to be gluten-and dairy-free, not realizing when I started that the 4th was coming up. Duh. So I’m having to avoid most of the good stuff. Enjoy!

      How did you do with your food this holiday, Edie? Were you still able to enjoy while sticking to your gluten-free and dairy-free diet?

  3. Happy 4th of July! I’m always amazed by the holiday-themed food that people come up with. I am not that crafty or creative. LOL.

      Hi Jennifer – I am not crafty or creative. I went with an apple pie…that looked pitiful because the top crust didn’t stick together. My family still scarfed it down so I guess they didn’t mind that it wasn’t pretty. :)
