As you’re celebrating today, whether with fireworks, food or friends, don’t forget those fight to keep our country free!
I was asked to make a cake for the brother of a dear childhood friend of mine. His family was bidding him a fond farewell as he joined the US Air Force. They actually through a going away party for him on Memorial day and asked me to make a patriotic red, white and blue cake to mark the occasion. Growing up beside Eglin Air Force base I’ve always felt a connection to the military even though my family is civilian. As an adult I have an even greater connection, since my sister married an Airman. So I was thrilled to get the opportunity to make a beautiful cake for this sweet family.
Even though the cake was made on Memorial day, I thought today would be a great day to share it! So I hope you all are having a wonderful holiday. Enjoy your family, friends, some good food, and definitely your freedom! Happy Fourth of July everyone!
I’ll be enjoying a picnic and some fireworks on the water in Niceville, FL with my family and friends. What are your plans for celebrating today?
