It's almost the 4th of July. Some of you lucky duckies are already on your vacays. I hope you're sitting by the beach with a drink in hand. In honor of the 4th and the fact that my new laptop's screen is on the fritz, here's a fun 7-layer stars and stripes red velvet cake from the B&B baking adventure files. Anyone who has had a successful ASUS customer service experience* please feel free to lend your sympathy in the comments...
If you're not in the mood for baking (and who could blame you in this heat!), I highly recommend my Red, White and Blueberry icebox cake from my American Classics column over at Serious Eats.
*By successful customer service experience, I mean one that's outside the stories I've read of about them putting refurb parts in new machines and taking forever to return your computer. Eeep and wahhhhh. We have a book to work on. I can't be laptopless for two weeks. *SOB*
