What says patriotic more than fireworks? This pyrotechnic holiday was always my Grandpa's favorite because it also doubled as his birthday. When he was young he was convinced that the fireworks bursting in the nighttime sky were in his honor. Through the years a tradition was born, every year on his birthday cake instead of candles we placed sparklers and sang "Happy Birthday" to Grandpa as the sparklers spit their light and ashes over the soft frosting. This year Grandpa's Snickerdoodle cake was dressed up with red and white stars and a shower of edible sparkles shooting up from the center of the cake. Happy Birthday Grandpa we miss you.
