4th of July Recipes

With 4th of July this weekend, I needed to find some yummy recipes to curb my sweet tooth.  My lovely aunt makes a flag cake every year, and it always reminds me of the 4th of July, it's simple and so yummy.

Layer 8 slices of pound cake in a 12x8 baking dish, top with 1 cup of strawberries and blueberries each, 1 8oz of cool whip, design stars and stripes  with 3 cups of strawberries and 1/3 cup blueberries.  Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.  Enjoy

I also came across this cake that I'm sure I'm making this year, it looks so de-lish!
The recipe is here

I also found these, that I want really badly

I am most definitely making these

There were also these fun recipes at Rice Krispies, and Nick Jr. that the kids will love!!  

I hope that you'll share your favorite 4th of July Recipe or Craft

Have yourself a Tasty Tuesday!

I think the fruited Cheesecake flag recipe looks so good, and the white chocolate covered strawberries are such a good idea!
