Fourth of July Dessert Ideas!

Bomb Pop Cupcakes!!!

 

Bomb Pop Cupcakes!

Oh my, I love the fourth of July! I love the picnics, and pool parties, and cookouts, and fireworks…and the time with family!

My parents have always (like always, for as long as I can remember!) had a giant pool party for the fourth and invited our entire extended family for burgers and brats and volleyball and sunshine….and for a competitive display of our best “at home” fireworks we could find, later in the evening. I have so many fun memories of chasing fireflies and waving sparklers with my cousins (that are all grown with kids of their own now!). This year is different. For starters, mom isn’t here to orchestrate the complexities of the celebration. The house is in boxes and bags- ready to show to whomever might be interested in buying, and the pool and yard are immaculately kept. Pool toys and floats are all deflated and either sold or put away. Sometimes I sit on the back porch and watch the fireflies and remember all the laughter and fun.

I know that these times are not forever over. This year is different, but once dad settles into his new place there will be other celebrations and family times over the fourth. This year though…my heart wasn’t in the “create something new and fun” place. So instead, I thought you might enjoy a collection of some of my previous red-white-and-blue recipes.

Polka Dot Cake~ a recipe revisited!

Posted on

Revisited Recipes!Day #5 is here, along with our final revisited and recreated recipe.  I’ve really enjoyed remembering these recipes with all of you.  I hope you have found one to try for this upcoming holiday weekend!

Our final recipe is my personal favorite of the week, mainly because it brings the most smiles.  If you want to make a cake that will be a show-stopper at your holiday celebration, this is it.

Polka Dot Cake Revisited!This recipe was published recently, in January of 2013.  It is so incredibly fun to make.  I’ve made it 5 times now and each time I do, I love it more.  You can color the cake layers, you can color the polka dots…endless fun possibilities!

It is not a difficult recipe, but it is time consuming and it requires a cake ball maker (or, according to my commenters on the recipe, a mini muffin tin).

It takes two cake mixes and I made both mixes and simply divided them evenly into the three colors.  I made 12 cake balls in each color and one layer of each color.

The original blog post has detailed instructions and photos, so I recommend you visit there 1st if you want to make this cake.  The comments are also very helpful and full of tips on making this work well.

RR HeaderDay #4 of our celebration of past recipes.  This week is going fast!  Today’s recipe is the 4th most viewed recipe on the Easybaked site.  It has had nearly 60,000 visits since it was published in February of 2012.  Can you guess what it is????

Oreo pops - a revisited recipe!These little treats are a favorite of mine.  They have been remade as mummies and snowmen already- the decorating possibilities are just endless!

These have been the star attraction at birthdays, showers, picnics, retirement parties, and even as favors at weddings.  They have been decorated in flowers and butterflies and school colors and even with Barney the Dinosaur!  The end of July they will be featured in Women’s World Magazine (so be on the look-out and grab a copy!).

For the Fourth of July holiday I simply dipped them in red white and blue and decorated with drizzles and sprinkles.  SO easy.  I tied these up in little favor bags and they are all set to travel to all of my upcoming holiday parties and picnics!  I just love things you can make ahead!

RR HeaderWelcome back to day #3 of our fun Fourth of July week!  Today, I’d like to revisit one of my favorite Halloween cakes~ and try it in red white and blue!!!  It’s incredibly easy to make and the colors are just too much fun!  Ready to revisit another recipe?  Here we go:

Colorful Bundt CakeThis recipe was originally published on October 6, 2012.

I’ve made layered cakes before in all sorts of colors and it is SO tedious to layer everything “just so”  This cake involves just pouring colors in together and baking.  The patterns come out different each time and the possibilities are endless.  I just love it red white and blue!  The glaze on top is just pre-made frosting that has been softened in the microwave and colored with food color gels.  Easy easy easy to make~ plus its so much fun to cut into and see what pattern happened inside!
