These are just some suggestions. Use your imagination and create a fun filled Fourth Of July Cake.

Now follow these steps:

1. To start, fold the towel and shape it into a cake and then pin. To make your cake more stable, take some poster board and cut it the height of the cake. Make the poster board into a round circle and insert into cake center.

2. If you wish you could take more hand towels, cloth napkins, and roll them to fit inside your towel cake. In using cloth napkins you can then find napkin rings and use those to decorate the outside of your creation as well.

3. Fill center with shred. Pack this down well and take the ribbon and run it around the outside of cake, pin or glue ends in the back of cake.

4. Now the fun part. Take your other ribbon, the one with the blue stars and cut them into squares about 6 by 6 inches. Fan them and then wrap ribbon around the center. Pull tight and tie. Glue these onto the outside of cake.

5. To arrange items in your cake, make little holes in shred and began to insert items starting with heavy items in back of cake. Take out some glow sticks and stand them up like candles. Do the same with sparklers. Put poppers in front laying them down, and just fill in empty spaces with whatever else you have be it candy, cups and so on. Think about what your family and friends enjoy and include those.

Miami Heat Makes us Proud

Well, Florida might have hurricanes and hot, hot, summers, but this year we have something Good to finally talk about. Our basketball teams. I thought it grand when the team where my son goes to college, The Florida Gators, won, but last night was even a greater thrill. When the buzzer rang and we realized the Heat had won, the entire family went nuts. What a feeling. Champions!! It reminded me of the night the Marlins beat the Cincinnati Red to win the world series and the great time my family enjoyed after that win. It was parades, a trip to the stadium to celebrate and just a week filled with family fun. Thanks Heat for bringing our family some great time spent together and memories that will last a lifetime. --- Diana Ennen
