This year I’m hosing a HUGE July 4th Celebration at the Armed Forces Retirement Home in Washington, DC.   I’m expecting about 3000 people to attend to enjoy food vendors, music, entertainment, carnival games and fireworks!

I don’t have to cook or bake for the celebration, however that won’t stop me from making this super cute Patriotic Sugar Cookie Cake for my kids to enjoy in the days leading up to the 4th of July!

What I love most about this dessert is how incredibly quick and easy it is to put together and bake.

The ingredients are ones that I always have on hand in my pantry so I don’t have to run to the store to pick up supplies to make.

The second thing I love about this dessert is that it’s a one-bowl recipe.  Ingredients don’t need to be measured out into other bowls which means less mess, less clean up and easy baking!

My husband loves this recipe because of the white chocolate chips.  You could easily substitute milk or dark chocolate chips, however the patriotic sprinkles wouldn’t stand out as much as with white chocolate chips.  Making my husband love this recipe is a win in my book because he rarely likes dessert.

So what exactly is a cookie cake, you may be asking?  It’s a dessert that is made with a cookie batter base but baked in a cake tin.  It’s thick and rich like a cookie, but cuts like a cake into slices!

Frosting.  The frosting totes makes this dessert a cake too!  Lots and lots of sweet, creamy buttercream frosting decorating the top of this cookie transforms it into a decadent cake!

And the sprinkles make this dessert patriotically  perfect.

Don’t you think? I mean, everything is better with sprinkles!

I think I’ll just serve myself up a big slice, grab a glass of milk and enjoy!

Nothing better than a Patriotic Sugar Cookie Cake for the 4th of July!

Fourth of July Soiree

This post is sponsored by Hebrew National via Mode Media.

Fourth of July is right around the corner… are you ready? Here are some fun, easy ways you can celebrate America’s Independence by hosting a Fourth of July Soiree!Fourth of July Soiree | JavaCupcake.com

Planning for this party was pretty easy since our Nation’s colors are Red, White and Blue.  To mix things up a bit, I decided to go with a light blue instead of the traditional dark blue for the party color scheme.

I set the table with a red table cloth with a white runner and set out light blue coasters around the table for drinks.  The table centerpiece is made of several tissue paper tassels placed around a short 8 inch round cake plate to add height.  I topped the cake plate with a white painted mason jar and silk flowers.   Simple, festive and super cute!

For the food, I had to go with a classic… hot dogs!  I had my husband grill up my favorite Hebrew National All Beef Franks for the soiree and then served them with a variety of toppings.  Ketchup, mustard, onions, tomatoes, and relish… just to name a few!

Keeping with the patriotic theme, I served a red, white and blue fruit salad.  This side was super easy to toss together and features fresh sliced strawberries, bananas and blueberries topped with watermelon cut into star shapes.  I used a small cookie cutter to cut the melon.

Finally, I made a big plate of nachos… red, white and blue nachos!  I melted white pepperjack cheese over blue corn tortilla chips then topped it all with fresh diced onions and tomatoes.   Served it with a tomato salsa and these nachos were ready to party!

AuthorLogoWhat makes a Hebrew National kosher hot dog premium? It’s all about what makes the cut (And what doesn’t). We’re choosy about what goes into our franks – we use only premium cuts of 100% kosher beef from the front half of the cow and then choose the best from that. No artificial flavors, colors, fillers or by-‐‐products. When your hot dog is Kosher, that’s a hot dog you can trust! For more summer fun with Hebrew National, visit facebook.com/hebrewnatonal.
