I have to come clean....every fourth of july I make my American Flag. I've talked about it before. No big deal.
It's just yellow cake with whipped cream and berries. Simple and easy, yet festive at the same time.
Here's the catch:
this cake goes largely untouched....always!!! Hardly anyone eats it! BAH!? I don't get it. year after year after year this cake sits on the picnic table looking pretty as a picture with nary a slice removed.
(believe me, at this point I just chop it up hoping that the slices seem inviting)
Over the years I've become stubborn. It's the Fourth of July darn't and this is the day I make my cake...and I think it tastes good.
Now it's become a joke among my good friends, they know I am showing up with this thing...whether they eat it or not.
