Moist red, white and blue marble layer cake with fluffy vanilla buttercream frosting. A festive dessert for the 4th of July or any summer party!

One of my favorite holidays of the entire year is finally here! For as long as I can remember, I’ve always loved the 4th of July. It’s basically a giant party. Food, sun, parties… and fireworks! What’s not to love? Of course, our sweet pup may not agree with me when it comes to the huge booms. But, so far she’s doing well with all of the holidays noises we can hear locally.

Totally unrelated to anything holiday ore food related BUT I recently discovered the show Shooter. I loved the movie so I figured I’d give it a shot. So far so good! I’m actually surprised by how well done it is. Usually shows based on movies or even sometimes based on books don’t meet my expectations. If you’re into action and mystery type shows, it’s totally worth checking out!

I attempted to kick start my summer reading last week but one thing lead to another and it didn’t happen. I have Truly Madly Guilty, ready to start. Now that various camps and sports sessions done, I can hopefully kick back a bit and get into a nice summer reading groove. I have a nice big list of possibilities. If you read anything amazing this summer, be sure to send along your recommendations!

And the most important thing here… CAKE!

What is a 4th of July party without dessert?! A festive treat is absolutely necessary for every holiday party.

Instead of your typical round layer cake, two square cakes are transformed into a fun rectangular layer cake.

Moist and festive red white and blue marble layer cake with fluffy vanilla buttercream frosting. An easy and impressive cake to share with your friends and family!

Be sure to add this patriotic marble cake to your holiday plans!

Have a happy, delicious and safe 4th of July!
