HAPPY 4TH OF JULY EVERYONE!


Hello blog friends. 

I wanted to wish everyone a fabulous week and Happy 4th of July. 

I love celebrating the 4th of July with family and friends.  

We usually spend it celebrating with family at a BBQ.







Last year I made and decorated these cupcakes with my daughter.  We had so much fun icing the cupcakes to look like an American Flag.  

The cupcakes are baked with Ducan Hines Cake Mix Classic Yellow in cupcake tins.  For the frosting we used Duncan Hines Buttercream Creamy Home-Style Frosting and food coloring.  So easy and fun to make.  

The cupcakes at the BBQ party hosted by my brother and sister-in-law were a big hit!





We had watermelon and blueberries for dessert.  It looked very festive.






We also enjoyed a cake with white frosting with red, white, and blue sprinkles on top.






If we don't go to any parties than we love going to the beach and eating mango pops.





Another fun thing to do is to go for a bike ride.

Whatever you do for the 4th of July, I hope you have a fun time celebrating with family and friends.  

Please be safe everyone.
