Would you ever believe that a "Butter Recipe Golden" cake mix and Cream Cheese Frosting would not have one hint of milk protein?????!
I know, its shocking!
Now not all the brands of cake mixes and cream cheese frosting are milk-free, but the two pictured about really are!! So I whipped up a cake and made a flag out of it. You know, for Independence Day! After all, it is a celebration of our amazing nation's birthday!
I did not use pink frosting. The strawberries bled a little :)The white things are marshmallows cut in half lengthwise. It was fun to see the my little nephews eyes light up at the sight of a cake. I felt a warm glowy feeling inside when one said, "It looks like a FLAG!" phew.. I was hoping it was obvious!
We went to a fun little parade. It was the weirdest weather for the Fourth of July--misty and cool. We don't let Mickey pick up any candy as there are only a few candies that are safe for him to eat. Of course many of them are chocolate (which usually contains milk) or there is a natural banana flavor in some of the fruity ones. We bring his own treats along but I still get a twinge of sadness in my tummy that he can't experience the joy that he sees the other kids getting as they dive after the sugary morsels.
We enjoyed an afternoon with family. It was a special treat as Grandma and Grandpa were here visiting for they had come to behold The Zaugg Team's new precious baby.
