Salute the Red, White, and Blue United States of America with These Patriotic 4th of July Treats (Second Edition)

With Father’s Day being over, I can now proceed to 4th of July. For me as a blogger, the 4th of July is usually an odd one out since it takes place in the summer while other major holidays fall around during the fall, winter, and early spring. As far as Americans are concerned, the 4th of July is denotes the day in 1776 when the United States (then 13 colonies) officially severed ties with Great Britain during the American Revolution. However, the Brits might beg to differ on this account since the US was still a British possession as far as they’re concerned. Anyway, last year I did a treat post on 4th of July along with a series of Declaration of Independence signers and it was a measurable success. So I decided to do another one for the occasion mostly because the treat posts tend to be so popular for other holidays, too. Thus, expect a lot of treats to be in the red, white, and blue because they are the colors of the American flag. I’ll also have other ones coming up which are related to crafts and so forth. So we hold ourselves to be self-evident that all men are created equal and I want you to enjoy these patriotic 4th of July treats for your star spangled reading pleasure.

 

  1. There’s no better way for a cake lover to show patriotic pride than with a mini cupcake American flag.
Notice how the sprinkles stand in for stars. Wonder how long it took to decorate this.
