How about an American Flag on the INSIDE of your cake? How fun is that? The sparklers are also a nice touch and you can never have too many sprinkles (on a sprinkle cake).

So holy cuteness overload am I right?! This cake is just so unique and fun to look at. I am a big fan of shading also which this cake is killing and it adds in a rustic appeal.

These cakes opened my eyes to new ways to sport American pride! I mean I don’t have a reason per say to make a 4th of July cake, but does one really need a reason? I’m thinking not. Then I can say I made a cake for the United States of America which is a pretty big deal.
