For our Canadian friends (& those who love them).

Yesterday was Canada Day, and if you didn’t know that, it’s probably because you’re not Canadian, which is a perfectly fine way to be and frankly a condition shared by most humans.

We here at In My Head are also not Canadian, but we believe it’s important to respect and honor our neighbors to the north. And so we have brought them cake:


Canada Day cake


Caption on original: “My American friend made us a cake for Canada Day. . . . Thanks buddy.”



  1. Reblogged this on Amanda's Words / starfire8me and commented:
    That looks DELICIOUS!!!

  2. Americans may not be able to change their stars and stripes, but as a Canadian, I have to say that “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery”, even if it is only the icing on the cake. Love it!

    Awww, very nice! And while “we here at In My Head are not Canadian, our ancestors were for a couple of generations, eh? 🙂

    Of course, if you’re the descendant of one of the approximately 600,000 Americans who settled in Alberta, this may in fact be a very accurate cake.

    (that 600K number I picked up from wikipedia a while ago)

    as L. reminded you, we were Canadians just 3 generations. My dad was a 1st generation American.

    • I’ve never thought of it that way! Indeed, Grandpa was first generation American. Huh!
