Happy Birthday, America. Let's celebrate by getting fat together! Here are some great ways to do it:
Explosively delicious: Pop Rocks cookies!
...but if it's hot, cool it down with Pop Rocks Ice cream!
America the Sweet: Hartford Election Day Cake from United Cakes of America.
Totally sweet trompe l'oeuil: hot dog and hamburger style!
Red, White, and Blueberry: A pretty (tasty) cheesecake tart via Martha Stewart.
Strawberries are more American (and more delicious) when stuffed with cream cheese and Pecans. (thanks, Paula Deen!)
Dessert Nachos: heaven on a plate?
Seeing red isn't so bad, when it's Red Velvet Strawberry Shortcake.
Peachy Keen: Country peach pie sounds like a sweet treat!
Got extra cake? No worries, cool it down in Cake Shake form!
These sweets aren't for eating, but aren't these 4th of July Donut Cufflinks cute?
