Cinco De Mayo Celebration

Cinco De Mayo Celebration

I am planning to do a little Cinco de mayo celebration on the 5th of May. This holiday was very popular when I was growing up in California. There would be a celebration at school every year and the a lot of cities in California would have A Cinco de mayo celebration.. Contrary to what people think it is not in Independence Day celebration but is a celebration of the Mexican militia victory over the French army at The Battle of Puebla in 1862. It is mostly celebrated in the state of Puebla and areas of the United States with large Hispanic populations. This is the cake I am planning form the Betty Crockers website to use for their Birthday cake. I will also serve Tacos, Cowboy Beans, Spinach Rice, Tortilla Chips and Salsa.
