Last weekend my parents hosted Cocktails & Dreams: the Hamptons of the Midwest.
The spread of food available was quite plentiful; my Grandpa summed it up best when he said he “felt like a bear in a strawberry patch”. I tried to help set up and cook as much as I could, but one thing I knew for certain was that damnit it if I was going to let another Independence Day pass without expressing my patriotism via the culinary arts.
I made an American flag cake.
