We look forward to the 4th of July in my house. It usually means a day of family and friends gathering together to enjoy some of the most precious moments of the summer. Topped off with an evening of a decorated light filled sky. We have always spent the day at my aunt’s house barbecuing and swimming. The kids play in the water all day waiting for the night to approach with great anticipation. During the day the food is endless. We serve everything from grilled meats to gorgeous salads and a bounty of desserts. My family always makes sure to have a 4th of July Gelatin Cake on the table. It is super easy to make and is cool to the mouth on a hot day. This cake is served chilled and it holds all the patriotic colors of the holiday. It stands tall in all the glory of red white and blue. Enjoy!
