Memorial Day Sweets & Treats

To continue the Memorial Day fun, I’ve come across some seriously cute treats that just had to be shared!  No doubt there will be a lot of patriotic inspiration coming up over the next month with July 4th just around the corner, too.  So let’s get our patriotic on and have fun!

Why not start off the day with a mix of regular and red velvet pancakes, as described by I am Baker?

I'm always looking for healthy treats to offset all the gorgeous sweets. Add a little patriotic flair to your lunch or for a pot-luck with this watermelon/cheese/blueberry flag. (as seen at Wenderly)

Simulate bottle rockets and other fireworks with push pops and cheesecake skewers from Kitchen Fun with My Three Sons and the Lady Behind the Curtain.

What's more American than pie, right? How about finishing off the day with this patriotic cherry pie from the Larson Lingo? (you could also probably do Strawberry-Rhubarb if cherry isn't your thing).

Do you have any special treats you make for Memorial Day?
