Fourth of July!




I just LOVE LOVE LOVE the 4th of July! I love the BBQ's, the colors, the festivities, family gathering, and most of all my baby boy Loukas was born on this day. So parties are always big, patriotic, and full of food, desserts, and family. However, this year my little man has asked for a non-patriotic party. A motorcycle party at Pump-It-Up with no Red-White-and Blue, no fireworks, and not at home. So sad. But it is his BIG 5, so I let him have a non-patriotic birthday. But I just had to reminisce on the parties in the past and the fun times we had. Hope fully you get inspired for your BBQ this weekend! I will be making him his Flag birthday cake, no matter what!!! It's a family favorite and I will share the recipe below! Enjoy and Happy 4th of July America!

Hi Nina! You're parties are so adorable! Where did you find the superheroes from his party last year? Were doing a superman party for Austins 5th birthday next month and I'm looking for ideas :)

Also- can you post the recipe for the flag cake? Looks delicious!

I purchased from TomKat and enlarged and had a friend paint the ones behind the cookie bar. I have those and rent them out...TomKat does not sell that anymore because of copyright issues...I just saw at the dollar store pop candy in super heroes...they were cool! I will definitely post recipe for cake. Thanks!
