4 Most American Desserts for the 4th

Love the 4th of July, but hate making the same tired, old desserts every year? Us, too. So, we asked ourselves, "What's more American than apple pie?" Turns out, a lot of things.

Here's our list of the top four most American desserts you could make to celebrate our great country this 4th of July:

Fake-Boobed Statue of Liberty D-Cup Cupcakes


Osama Bin Laden's Cake Balls



Meat Flag Cake

Democracy Pops

Alice Laussade writes about food, kids, music, and anything else she finds to be completely ridiculous. She created and hosts the Dallas event, Meat Fight, which is a barbecue competition and fundraiser that benefits the National MS Society. Last year, the event raised $100,000 for people living with MS, and 750 people could be seen shoving sausage links into their faces. And one time, she won a James Beard Award for Humor in Writing. That was pretty cool.
