This is my first post on this blog and this is the first time I have created a cake that has specific symbology. The blue roses are for American veterans that have served their country in the past. The red roses are for the soldiers that are currently risking their lives on a daily basis. The white roses are for those brave souls that have giving their lives so that the rest of us can be free.
The stars and stripes are, of course, there to represent America and all that we stand for. The ruffles and swags along the bottom are a reminder of days when life was simpler. When small towns held public picnics, played games and felt safe in their own homes.
This is my tribute to America. I hope everyone enjoys it.
