I love dressing up food for patriotic holidays.
This is a simple idea I did a couple of years ago.
I baked a cake mix in a 9" X 13" pan, placed it on a cutting board and after frosting, I used small jelly belly jelly beans to make a flag. A long pretzel rod makes for a good flagpole. I used gel in a tube to make the USA.
I love to get 'decked out' for these special holidays too, and when I've gone into church with my r,w & b scarf, earrings and purse, one of the dear older ladies salutes me. How fun! This is a t-shirt scarf I made as I was getting ready for church the Sunday before Memorial Day this year.
