  • Jello Flag Cake
  • Cake Batter Ice Cream
  • Blue Razz Sundae
  • Jello Freedom Pops
  • Pound Cake
  • Peach Cobbler
  • Editor’s Tip: Red Velvet- Pick your favorite Box Cake Mix to bake your cake when done.  Drizzle the red velvet cake with Maraschino cherry juice while cake is still warm cover cake.  When room temp add cream cheese frosting.  Slice and enjoy
  • Red Velvet Cupcakes are very popular.  For LA folks, I suggest Porto’s Bakery, Simply Cakes of Sweetville(online only), and Famous Cupcakes.  For the best slice of Red Velvet Cake visit Ms. Peaches in North Hollywood.

Pick up Cupcakes from Swirls (Location through Los Angeles- Love the strawberry milkshake cupcake and blueberry) or Brooklyn Cupcakes in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.  Cupcakes shops are easy to be found.


Get Patriotic with a Blue Martini and throw in a cherry for some red color

  1. Thanks for a greatly informative post. I tried some of your items and would just like to add some feedback. Basically i camp up with my own twist to the recipes of deviled eggs and they came out nice. But the one me and my kids loved the most was the jello freedom Pops. They were just perfect. I added the bit more milk than the recipes suggested to give it a runny texture and it worked a treat. For anyone who is going try these out, remember to add some extra milk and you will get a lovely runny jello. I don’t know about you but i am a big fan.
