Happy Fourth of July!

To all my American readers, family, and friends. Happy 4th of July!

This is one of my favorite parts of living in the States. {They do make holiday’s that little bit more magical, Thanksgiving is a close second. But really anything that revolves around getting together with the people you love, and eating good food, has to be good!} I have never experienced anything like it. They sell fireworks in every parking lots for the 2 weeks leading up to it. {which is why some of you might have seen my complaining about it last night on facebook!} So when that sun sets. The whole city goes off. We have a spot up on the highway where we just park the car and can see the entire skyline. I wish pictures could do it justice. It leaves you in awe.

So celebrate with friends and family like us. We’ll be doing a backyard BBQ as tradition calls. And always one for traditions, I’ll be bringing dessert! So check back tomorrow because I modified just slightly a favorite of mine. Its a Strawberry/poundcake trifle. I asked for it every summer for my birthday. Its amazing and its simple. And with a few tweaks, it was perfect for celebrating the Red, White, and Blue!

PS these were cupcakes we made for a work BBQ yesterday. I thought I would layer blue, white, and red batter. I measured them all out equally, which took its fair share of time. Only to pull them out of the oven and discover I was left with 2 thin lines of blue and white, and a whole half of red. Hey I experiment so you don’t have to! Apparently you want to cover your top layer with much less batter! No one complained though! I even slipped 3 Canadian flag liners into the mix 😉 For Brandon, myself and Sawyer!

Happy 4th of July!

Be safe!
