We’re over here dreaming of summertime, sitting by the pool, backyard BBQs, fireworks and the 4th of July. But those are just dreams, because reality is that we are freezing at soccer games and wishing it would warm up and that summer would come! This is Amber and Danetta from Fun-Squared and today we’re giving you a very fun way to celebrate those patriotic American holidays-whether it’s the 4th of July or Memorial Day or any other patriotic celebration, we’ve got a fun Patriotic USA Cake!

Patriotic Cake for the 4th of July

There’s just something about red, white and blue that makes us happy! And mix that with glitter and put it on a cake and you’ve got something awfully fun!

The cake looks fun as it is, but guess what? When you cut into it-it’s red, white and blue inside too!

4th of July Cake

Does it get any better?!

 

Patriotic Cake Tutorial:

So let’s talk about how to make this

Supplies Needed:

  • Red Velvet Cake Mix
  • White Cake Mix
  • Blue Food Coloring
  • Buttercream Frosting
  • Round Cake Pans
  • Shortening
  • Wooden USA Letters (from the craft store)
  • Glue or Decoupage
  • Red, White and Blue Glitter
  • Red, White and Blue Accents (from the craft store)
  • Skewer Sticks
  • Hot Glue

We started off by making our USA letters. We got wooden letters from the craft store and glittered them.

Use a paintbrush to spread the glue or decoupage on the top of your letters. Then sprinkle glitter on:

Then glue your letters to one of your skewer sticks:

To make your cake, prepare the red velvet cake mix as indicated on the box. You’ll then place it in a round cake pan. Make sure to add a thin layer of shortening to the pan and then a thin layer of flour it so that the cake pops out easily. Bake one round cake in red velvet.

Prepare the white cake mix as indicated. Separate into two bowls and add blue food coloring to one. Shortening and flour your pans again and bake one layer of each of these as well.

When the cakes are baked and cooled, layer them on top of each other with frosting between each layer.

Then frost the outside, making it as smooth as you can. No worries though because your decorations will hide any flaws.

Add your letters on the skewers and then any accents you want.

USA Cake Decorations

We used ribbon and floral decor and just general patriotic decor.

Then enjoy!

Friends, I am SO excited to be back with you. And if you know anything about me, it’s probably no surprise that I brought cake 😉 Not just any cake … Mini No Bake Wedding Cakes! Teeny tiny tiered cakes that are absolutely perfect for bridal showers, a rehearsal dinner, anniversary party or even wedding favors.

Mini No Bake Wedding Cakes - these sweet teeny tiered treats are perfect for a bridal shower, rehearsal dinner or wedding favor!

In case we haven’t met, I am Keri from Shaken Together. I am an operations manager, working mom to two teenage boys and wife of 17 years. I love to share no-fuss food and easy entertaining ideas, so if you like recipes with regular ingredients and no complicated techniques, then I am the girl for you!

Now, since wedding season is quickly approaching, I wanted to share a sweet little tiered no bake treat for any wedding celebration …

Mini No Bake Wedding Cakes

Mini No Bake Wedding Cakes are teeny tiered treats that couldn't be easier to make!

Here is a list of ingredients to make these mini cakes:

  • Frozen pound cake
  • One tub of purchased white/vanilla/cream cheese frosting
  • 3 round cookie cutters in varying sizes – mine were 2 1/4, 1 3/4 and 1 1/4 inch rounds and they are from an inexpensive set from a big box store
  • White nonpareils (sprinkles) and sparkling sugar

Gather the following kitchen items as well:

  • Baking sheet with sides
  • A cooling rack that fits inside the baking sheet
  • Sharp knife
  • Spoon

These cakes start with frozen pound cake. Using a large sharp knife, cut the frozen pound cake in about 1 inch slices lengthwise. Since pound cake is a little denser than regular cake, it holds its shape well and can easily be cut with a cookie cutter. Which is handy, since that is exactly how these cuties start.

One small frozen pound cake results in about four 3-tier mini wedding cakes. (This may vary depending on the size of the cookie cutters you use.)

Mini No Bake Wedding Cakes start with slices of frozen pound cake and cookie cutters!

P.S.A. – Save your pound cake scraps for mini trifles, top them with fruit or just to nibble while you work 🙂

Once your pound cake rounds are cut, use some frosting to act as ‘glue’ to hold the tiers together. This also helps even out the layers if they are a teeny bit uneven. You could also use jam or even Nutella between the layers – YUM!

Tiers of pound cake are held together with vanilla frosting - these Mini No Bake Wedding Cakes are so easy!

Place a cooling rack in a baking sheet and place the mini cakes on top of the cooling rack. Then, microwave the remaining frosting at 20 second intervals until it is a pourable consistency. Spoon the frosting over the stacked mini cakes like this:

Believe it or not, store brought frosting is all you need to frost these Mini No Bake Wedding Cakes

Make sure you continue to spoon frosting around the sides and over the layers to ensure that the entire mini cake is covered.

Believe it or not, store brought frosting is all you need to frost these Mini No Bake Wedding Cakes

Allow the frosting to drip off and set up slightly. Then, sprinkle the No Bake Mini Wedding Cakes with white sprinkles and sparkling sugar.

Mini No Bake Wedding Cakes - no cake is complete without sprinkles!

These are just so pretty and decked out in their wedding finery. You could easily personalize these with sprinkles/sugar in the wedding colors or even edible flowers. Wouldn’t that be gorgeous?!

Mini No Bake Wedding Cakes - these sweet teeny tiered treats are perfect for a bridal shower, rehearsal dinner or wedding favor!

Whether you are hosting a bridal shower, helping with a rehearsal dinner or DIYing your own wedding, these Mini No Bake Wedding Cakes are the perfect easy dessert!

Do you have any great wedding stories? Fun bridal traditions in your family? Did you have a traditional or totally untraditional wedding? When my hubby and I had been married for ten years, we renewed our vows – our boys walked me down the aisle in Converse, I wore flowered shoes and we made all of the food ourselves.  🙂

Ham and Spinach Stromboli Recipe

Ham and Spinach Stromboli

Ham and Spinach Stromboli is a great meal for busy nights. It is easy to eat on the run and it delicious warm, cold or somewhere in between. Haul it to the ballpark, send it the next day in lunches or eat it hot at home it is good any way. Stromboli is, essentially, a rolled up pizza so my kids have no problem eating it. The secret of this meal is the spinach cream cheese that we use in place of marinara. It has a little kick of red pepper flakes to add a little interest to the ham and cheese.

Ham and Spinach Stromboli Recipe

I use my go to pizza dough recipe for this dish. Once it is done raising, roll it out on a floured surface in a rectangle shape. It doesn’t need to be perfect so don’t stress too much.

Ham and Spinach Stromboli Recipe

Thaw and drain the spinach. I like to wrap it in a paper towel and squeeze out any extra water. Add it to the cream cheese along with the crushed red pepper flakes and mix. The red pepper adds a little kick to the dish without too much heat. Go ahead and adjust that to the levels of heat your family likes.

Ham and Spinach Stromboli Recipe

Spread the mixture onto the dough and top with slice ham and provolone cheese. Roll up the dough. Brush with a beaten egg, sprinkle on poppyseeds and use a knife to create slits 1″ apart on the top. Bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes before slicing.

Thanks for Sticking With Me Printable Tag

We’re in the home stretch to the end of the year! With only 12 more school days, it’s time to start thinking of how we’ll be thanking our teachers! This hasn’t been the easiest year for my oldest and I felt thanking the teacher for sticking with us would be very fitting, so I whipped up this Thanks for Sticking With Me printable tag.

End of Year Teacher Gift

You may remember these magnets from our Magnetic Chore Chart post, where I showed how to make them. After making ours, I was helping in the classroom and noticed the whiteboards were magnetic and thought they would make a useful (and flashy) teacher gift. The metal tags are from Michaels and are perfect for holding the magnets in place (and they were super cheap).

Thanks for Sticking With Me Printable Tag

We picked up Post-It Notes as another “sticky” item to add to the gift basket for the teachers. If you want more sticky things a teacher could use here are some ideas: cute tape dispenser, gum, glue, candy, soda, lip gloss, and washi tape.

We packaged them up and tied the tag on the outside. If you want to make the gift a little more substantial go ahead and throw a gift card in the mix.

This Father’s Day printable art makes a heartfelt gift and is easy to replicate by simply turning on your home printer.

This printable art is perfect for Father's Day!

Hello Crafting Chicks fans! It’s Lydi from Lydi Out Loud sharing some free Father’s Day printable art with you today. Last month I was able to attend my 2nd SNAP conference, a fun and inspirational conference for creative bloggers in Salt Lake City (the Chicks were there too!) We received these lovely custom designed bracelets from Charmed Collections with one of my favorite quotes… “She believed she could so she did”.

"She believed she could so she did"!

As I looked at my bracelet and really thought about the quote, it got me thinking about all of the special people in my life that gave me encouragement to believe. My dad has certainly been one of those people. He believed in me even when I didn’t believe in myself and showed me that I could do whatever I set my mind to (and he was always there to cheer me on along the way).

That’s what inspired me to take this amazing quote and add onto it to make Father’s Day printable art. I know I wouldn’t have believed I could if I wasn’t raised to believe that from my loving and encouraging parents. They believed so that I could believe.

I always try to find personalized, heartfelt gifts for Mother’s and Father’s Day (you can see my Father’s Day gift from last year as an example) and I’m pretty sure this Father’s Day printable will be treasured by my dad.

This printable art is perfect for Father's Day!

Here’s how you can create your own Father’s Day printable art:

Trim off the white border and place the art in frame of your choice. Gift it to dad to show him how much he has helped form the strong woman you have become!

Father's Day printable art - such a heartfelt and special gift!

Greek Pork Souvlaki Kebabs

Greek Pork Souvlaki Kebabs are a summer dinner staple at our house. This recipe is so easy but is packed with delicious flavors.

Greek Pork Souvlaki Kebabs

My mom got this recipe from a friend who is Greek and her parent’s owned a Greek restaurant. The marinade is perfected and has been passed down through generations. It is better than any Greek takeout I’ve ever had, but don’t just take my word for it. Try it yourself and you’ll see what I’m talking about.

Greek Pork Souvlaki Kebabs

I’ll usually buy a large pork loin and double the marinade recipe. Then I freeze half of it for later and still have plenty for dinner that night.

Hi there! Rachel from Fawn here with you today.

Are you looking for a Father’s Day gift idea that all dads are sure to love?

Check out this fun and easy gift  for all the amazing men in your life.

Daddy's Car Wash Kit - Quick and easy Father's Day gift idea. Put together a quick and easy Father's Day car wash gift basket for all the Dads in your life.

Growing up, one of my favorite things to do was to help my Dad wash the car. I loved the sudsy bubbles, scrubbing the tires with a special brush and squirting the hose all over the car. Of course, what was supposed to be an hour of washing  the car turned into an all day water fight.  You can’t give a kid a hose and not expect to get squirted!  Even though our car never got really clean, the memories I have of those summer days washing the car with Dad are priceless. This Father’s Day, I wanted to give my husband a car washing kit so he and our daughter could start building those silly summer car washing memories.

This kit is quick and simple to put together and you can make it as inexpensive or expensive as you want. I purchased my products at Target but the dollar store has many car washing items that would work great as well. Heck, even a couple rolls of paper towels thrown in and you’re good!

I found this bucket at Target in the dollar section and knew it would be perfect. I loved the color ( my husband couldn’t care less about the color of a bucket…but I do!) and wanted to make a coordinating label to go with it.

You can download the bucket label HERE, then print it, cut it out and attach it to the front of the bucket.

You can also download and print out these cute car wash coupons HERE. My daughter is so excited for Dad to hand her a coupon so she can help him wash the car.

After you’ve printed out the coupons, punch a hole in the corners and thread a ribbon through the holes.

Tie the coupons to one of the handles of the kit or you can tuck them inside.

Finally, fill the bucket with supplies for all his car washing needs and you’re all set!
