July 4th: Striped and sprinkled with blue and red

 Today is July 4th,2010, Independence Day – America’s Birthday. As man other countries do, we are celebrating our nation’s birthday. We are celebrating with fireworks, picnics, friends, family, food and cake. Yes, we always have cake at each and every events and then some. While this is similar to last year’s treat, it is not the same.

A different time, date, year and cake shall grace the July 4th festivities here amongst the friends and family of Sweets and S’morsels. Please check back after the fireworks and fun to get the “inside scoop” in this Sweets and S’morsels treat.

Happy Independence Day! Our July 4th treat was yet another heart shaped cake. Let’s face it….if you are celebrating on a day like this you love America – or at least you are fond of the principles set forth so many years ago. Life, liberty and freedom —simple goals and plans for early settlers who came to this great land. So a heart shaped cake was in order.

Complete with blueberries and strawberries this yummy treat was refershing and tasty. Topped with whipped cream blue and red sprinkle sugars and confetti stars. The suprise inside was a first time for me — Jello Poke Cake, and double layered at that as well. Using red and blue Jello, poke the top of the cake with a fork or the end of a wooden spoon and pour the Jello Mixture over the cake and chill. Having room to chill the cake is the key :-).



So the end result is a red (jello), white (cake) and blue (jello) suprise as you cut the cake. And Enjoy! Fun, food, friends, family and festivities. Blessing to all until the next cake. Happy Baking!
