A fun and easy patriotic cake to celebrate your 4th of July and other patriotic holidays!
This 4th of July I wanted to try something new. Usually for our Independence Day celebration the focus is on the grill and meat for me (rightfully so), but this year I wanted to try some patriotism via bundt cake. I hadn’t had bundt cake in a long time and don’t think I have ever made one. Ashton and the women in my family make them quite frequently, but I don’t think I’ve ever tried or even helped. That being so, I thought it was a fitting time to try.
However, after making it I still don’t know if I can claim I made a bundt cake because I’m pretty sure I took every shortcut possible and it was crazy easy to make this! A box of cake mix, its accompanying ingredients, store bought frosting, and food coloring was all it took. Definitely not made from scratch, but it makes for good convenience and guaranteed good taste and baking!
I love our country and love and appreciate those who sacrificed to make us free initially and those who serve and sacrifice today to help us maintain those rights. I played smaller level, college football and some of the most memorable experiences I had were during the star-spangled banner’s playing/singing before our games. Every week it reminded me how fortunate I was to be able to do something I loved that in the grand scheme of things is so insignificant. I always love this time of year when we sing patriotic hymns at church. If you or your loved ones have ever served or do serve now to protect our freedom and rights, thank you. Have a great Independence Day everyone!

Ashton and Keaton began blogging together in 2016 as a passion project. Both siblings are lovers of food, family gatherings, and entrepreneurial pursuits, which made starting a food blog together a no-brainer.
