These desserts have a ton of American pride!

Independence Day is a time for grilling, gazing at fireworks, and sipping on summer cocktails. We put up patriotic decorations and find a way to work the American flag into anything, especially cake. But you don’t have to just make a flag cake if you want a red, white, and blue dessert table.

To help you get inspired, we pulled together some of our favorite patriotic dessert finds so you can have a truly American holiday.
