Today we get to look at some of America's best birthday cakes. :)

I don't feature sheet cakes too often here on Sunday Sweets, but this one is postcard-perfect; and all buttercream! Those are some sweet piping skills.
Another that looks almost too perfect to be real:
Love the bow.
Plus, this cake was beautiful *inside* as well as out:
And then CC member themaytrix took the hidden flag idea to the next level:
If you read the Reader's Digest, you may remember this couple:
WOW. Can't you almost hear the big band playing "Stars and Stripes Forever?"
And here's the gazebo the band would play in:
Proving that simple can also be stunning:
Believe it or not, those daisies are also gumpaste. Gorgeous!
Here's a cool idea, and executed flawlessly:
CC member mimiguk wrote the words to the national anthem as the stripes in the flag. Painstaking, I'm sure, but oh-so-perfect! (Just looking at all that script makes my hand cramp. Yow.)
And speaking of our national anthem, here's a cake celebrating its writing:

Happy Belated Canada Day! Sorry again for almost forgetting it on Thursday.
Fortunately, most of you Canadians both know what your national anthem is AND have a sense of humor, but a select few who don't on both counts were "patriotic" enough to write angry e-mails and leave goofy cake blogs over an imagined maligning of said anthem. [sigh]
So, for those still here who were offended: wrong song, and we certainly meant no offense. We love Canada. We love Canadians. Your bacon is awesome, William Shatner is da man, and we like that Celine Dion song...um...well, her music is Ok. So, yeah. Hope the beaver cake makes up for everything. Wreck on, eh?
