We gave them America and in return they gave us burgers, ‘Friends’ and Channing Tatum. Totally fair and plenty of reasons to celebrate. The little part of me that is vaguely American loves 4th of July. Well, I love the idea of it. In my mind I’m having a BBQ by a pool in the sunshine, eating a hot dog and wearing some sort of stars and stripes outfit that borders on fancy dress. In reality, I’m in the UK, it’s a little grey out and I’m nowhere near a BBQ. It’s ok though, as I’m celebrating in my own way, with cupcakes. I obviously went for the red, white and blue and added a little sparkle. I made enough to share with our friends who are over from across the pond. I hope it makes them feel like they aren’t missing out on any festivities. Happy 4th of July!
