memorial day backyard bbq inspiration

Did you think I was going to show you a picture of sticky goey ribs? Of course not. I found this amazing red-white-and-blue cake in the Blondie and Brownie archives, where we often turn to for food inspiration. Those gals eat it all. All! I don't know how they do it. Anyway, here is their spectacular holiday cake. Are you game to make it for this weekend? I kinda am. There's a how-to video on their blog and full directions. Or you can just riff on the photo and concoct your own.
