Happy Flag Day! Today we honor of the adoption of the American flag on June 14, 1777. The national flag which we see these days has been effective since July 4, 1960. This was following the inclusion of Hawaii in the United States of America. However, this flag featuring 50 stars on a canton against the background of 13 stripes - 7 red and 6 white - has been evolved through a long period of eventful years.
Old Glory is 234 years old today, happy birthday! In celebration, why not make a delicious cake. “Taste of Home” has a great recipe and, better yet, every time someone views the recipe they’ll donate 10¢ to the USO! When you make the cake, be sure to post a picture of it on the USO Facebook Page!
And watch as Taste of Home Editor-in-Chief Catherine Cassidy shows Fox and Friends co-host Steve Doocy how to make a flag cake.
