Happy Flag Day!

Happy Flag Day!

In the United States Flag Day is celebrated on June 14. It commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States, which happened that day by resolution of the Second Continental Congress in 1777. The United States Army also celebrates theArmy Birthday on this date. From Wikipedia.

Joann has a great tutorial on how to decorate these cute flag cookies and Wilton has a great free classic spritz cookie recipe.

This is a great cake for the 4th of July too. I would use strawberries instead of raspberries though.

For some crafting eye candy:
