Independence Day Food Ideas

Whether you go whole hog on the 4th of July or just like a little dash of patriotism, the Internet is full of great ideas for fun food. Here are a few of my favorites:

Simple Flag Sandwich is made with a red fruitr roll up, a pretzel stick, some blueberries, and a piece of white cheese.

Independence Day Toast. Just put cream cheese on the toast, then add blueberries, banana slices, and a little strawberry jam to make a flag design.

Fireworks Cake; this looks very do-able. It's just a cake with red, white, and blue cake batter mixed together.

Hidden Flag Cake. This is more challenging, but will amaze everyone!

Cupcake Flag "Cake." Easy peasy.

Patriotic Biscuits are made with stencils and food coloring.

Patriotic Ice Cream. So very simple; just put any white ice cream in a cone. Top with some blueberries and add red sprinkles to the bottom.
