The Fourth of July is, next to Christmas, my favorite holiday of the year. I run in a local 5k, watch early morning hot air balloon launches, eat a pancake breakfast in the park, cheer for the annual patriotic parade, attend barbecues, swim, and top it all off with fireworks at dusk. The culmination of a perfect summer day.
This flag cake from Martha Stewart is the perfect combination of decoration and dessert, perfect to take along to a holiday barbecue. I’ve been making a variation of it for years and think I’ll try Martha’s recipe this Fourth. If any of you try it, send photos and I’ll post them on Petit Elefant.
