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 and 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 share.

Do you ever have potlucks at home? Sometimes 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 Blueberry Whipped Cream, and my Oreo Brownie Poke Cake.

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

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

Step 2.  In two bowls or large measuring cups, prepare each color of Jello separately by mixing 1 cup of boiling water to dissolve the jello then add in 1/2 cup of cold water. Pour jello over the cake, alternating colors and making sure to get down into the holes until the entire cake is covered
