Yesterday was Canada’s 148th birthday!
One of my favourite parts about Canada day is the excuse for celebrating this beautiful country and all it stands for with our friends and family! With a day off, my family wears Canadian proud t-shirts and hosts an outdoor barbecue party for our friends and families. Barbecues are so much fun! The kids play on our swing set or fun outdoor games like ladder ball, t-ball or croquet, while the adults prepare a feast to feed an army! Since Canada day was in the middle of the week this year, we had a simplistic meal consisting of chips, Cesar salad, German potato salad and hamburgers. For dessert, I did manage to squeeze some late night baking in, to create this delicious patriotic cake thanks to Glutino’s Decadent Chocolate Cake mix!
Decadent Chocolate Cake Mix
If your constitutional right to outrageously good chocolate cake is under serious threat simply because your constitution doesn’t put up with gluten, don’t worry. We’ve got you covered, cupcake.
It’s not a surprise that I am a huge fan of Glutino products. I love how quick and easy they are to prepare and how even the inexperience baker can create a delicious treat. I am an absent minded baker. I get in the mood to bake and start throwing things together before I know if I have all the ingredients. Sometimes I race to the internet to find a substitution and other times I throw things together and hope for the best. Sometimes, I’m pleasantly surprised!

This cake can easily be modified with a combination of blueberries and stawberries to create a patriotic cake to celebrate our neighbour to the South’s patriotic holiday too!
