Happy 4th!

Hope everyone had a safe and fun Independence Day - We sure did!

This cake was incredibly delicious - its from the Barefoot Contessa and it has 1.5 pounds of butter, 1.5 pounds of cream cheese, 6 eggs and a pound of confectioner's sugar - but the berries are fruit so its healthy, too! Plus with my great attention to detail, I made sure it was historically accurate - the flag does have 11 stripes and 74 stars, right?

Independence Day was also the first time Aurora got to celebrate her own independence - Mike and I left the house without her for the first time ever! Grandma and Aunt Lora generously offered to babysit her while we went out, and I think she did just fine. It was a bit stressful (for me, mostly) but she was sleeping like a baby when we got home!

lolololol...your cake reminds me of a conversation between me and karin:

Karin - "Guatemala had, like, a 32 year civil war."
Me - "Between who?"
