15 Fourth of July Desserts You Have To Try


Fourth of July is almost here and you know what that means....It's time to make red,white, and blue colored desserts. We love any excuse to have desserts, especially themed desserts. Fourth of July just isn't Independence day without American colored icebox cakes and cupcakes, right?!.

Fourth of July is one of the Labels and Lacquer girls favorite holidays. It's so much fun! This holiday is the epitome of summer. We usually spend it sitting on the beach or having a BBQ poolside. We usually end the night by heading to the beach and watching fireworks. Our favorite part is getting the desserts ready to bring to whatever festivity we are attending. Bikinis and American themed sweets, these are a few of our favorite things!

I've had so much fun making this dessert round-up, enjoy baking! Celebrate the U.S.A in style with these desserts!
