Happy July, fellow Sweets lovers!

With America's Independence Day coming up, you know I had to find some pretty red, white, and blue numbers:

Plus this one has a drool-worthy surprise inside!

WOWIE. Our flag has never looked more delicious.


And look how sweet this old-fashioned bunting is:

Ahhh, but I have some goodies for my non-American friends, too. Check it out, rainbow fireworks!

So pretty! I like the abstract take on them, and the silhouettes are perfect.


I love the way Glory (yes, her name is Glory!) took these ice cream cookies:

...and stacked them to look like triple-deckers!

Oooh, I may have spoken too soon on that last flag cake; this one ALSO looks darn tasty:

I'm loving the thick textured buttercream on top; can't you just FEEL that crunching ever-so-slightly, then melting in your mouth?

Ooof, I really want some cake now.


Hang on, here comes another one that's not helping:

Alllll the grabby hands. Gimmie.


Of course I couldn't pass up a chance to feature another Captain America cake, right?

Look how clean and perfect that fondant work is! So good.


Now, let's end this post with a bang:

This one looks like an oil painting:

Look how the fireworks spill over the edge:

I think that's my favorite part; the way the fallout looks so shimmery near the bottom.


Big finale!

Simple, but wow does that pack a punch.


Happy Sunday, everyone!
