Living in America is certainly something to celebrate. Over the summer we remember those we have lost to protect our freedoms in this great country, celebrate our independence as a free nation and honor hard working Americans. We go all out in Red, White, and Blue!! It’s a time spent with friends, family, and (at my house) almost always  includes some delicious food.

We Americans are all in for a time of celebration and gathering with the ones we love is so important.

This patriotic cake is perfect for any Summer weekend get together.  Here are a few suggestions that will pair perfectly with it –  Honey Chipotle BBQ Wings, Grilled Summer Vegetable Pasta Salad, and then whatever else your guests or family will bring along to to share.

Do you ever have potlucks at home? There are times I cook the entire meal when company comes over, but often we all pitch in. For some reason I get selected to make dessert sort. A few family favorites that are requested are my  Easy Coconut Cream Pie, Mini Almond Cakes with with Blueberry Whipped Cream and my Oreo Brownie Poke Cake.

What are your traditions for your summer celebrations? I would love to hear down in the comments or over on our Facebook Group!

This cake is another easy recipe I hope you will enjoy sharing with your family and friends!
