Hispanic Heritage month is just around the corner and at home our family kicks it off by celebrating the independence day of our home country: Guatemala. We will probably be celebrating the whole weekend making crafts and talking about Guatemala, it’s beauty and it’s history as well as it’s national symbols.
This year my husband helped me create a fun cake banner that includes Guatemala’s national bird, the Quetzal as well as Guatemalan’s national flower, the Monja Blanca or White Nun orchid (Lycaste virginalis) .
Using the colors of Guatemala’s flag I also created some tissue flowers to make the banner more fun and give it some more depth. While I was at it I got inspired and made some more tissue paper flowers to decorate, these really make it look more festive and fun.
This banner is super easy to make all you need is a printer, paper, two wooden dowels or two paper straws, blue tissue paper, string and a pair of scissors. You can print the cake banner right HERE . This Guatemala Independence Day printable we created also includes Guatemalan flags and cupcake liners in case you want to make cupcakes instead of a cake and the flags would look super cute as cupcake toppers.
I hope you enjoy the Guatemalan party printables and if you are from Mexico, Honduras, Nicaragua, El Salvador or Costa Rica and will be celebrating your country’s independence day soon we have also made similar party printables for each of these Latin American Countries.

This easy and healthy recipe for Pollo en Jocón is a heartwarming tomatillo and cilantro chicken stew. It is a traditional Guatemalan dish, the ultimate cold-weather comfort food.
One of Guatemala’s more staple dishes, Tostadas, are deep-fried corn tortillas with different toppings to create delicious concoctions full of flavors. You typically spread Guatemalan tostadas with recado salsa (tomato sauce), refried black beans, and guacamole, topped with onion slices and cheese.
Shucos is a Guatemalan-inspired hot dog, but unique ingredients and flavors make them different from any traditional American hot dog. It has delicious toppings like guacamole, repollo (sauerkraut-style cabbage), and meats (sausages and chorizo are the most common). Pile everything, including condiments like mayo, ketchup, mustard, hot sauce, chimichurri sauce, or anything else you like!
Buñuelos Guatemaltecos are the quintessential Guatemalan comfort food for cold weather. A fritter-like ball of dough soaked in a rich syrup, buñuelos dulces (or bunuelos) is a popular Guatemalan food commonly sold by street vendors, at state fairs, and during the holidays.
Empanada de Manjar is a traditional Guatemalan dessert, crusty on the outside and creamy on the inside! They are usually eaten during Lent and many Guatemalan holidays.
If you have a craving for something sweet, then Guatemalan torrejas should be at the top of the list. Torrejas are sweet bread or brioche soaked in a milk or eggs mixture before being fried in oil. Then, you bathe them in a sweet syrup made from boiling water and spices into a golden brown sauce.
