Fourth of July was my favourite holiday when we were living in the US and I still like to make something to commemorate it so when I saw these Pinwheel Cupcakes, 4th July couldn’t come soon enough. Firstly, some fondant pinwheels.

Then a cake to decorate (admittedly not quite as cute as lots of cupcakes but my 2 year old wanted to bake the cake with me so I chose the easier option).

Now to enjoy!

Incidentally, I have always wondered whether there is a reason that this is the only date that is commonly referred to as day-month, as well as month-day.
