Every Fourth of July, I have the same conversation with myself. It resembles the following.
Me, to myself: "This year, you're finally going to make that red, white, and blue flag cake you always see on Pinterest decorated with strawberries and blueberries!"
Me, to myself: "But this is Las Vegas. The heat will make the fruit all gross and soggy."
Me, to myself: "Okay, maybe you'll just make the cake-and-frosting parts."
Me, to myself: "But what about the fruit? Without it, the flag cake is just a cake."
Me, to myself: "Just stay home this year. You're a loser with no friends anyway."
