American Flag Cake
July 04, 2014

I followed the directions and had the cakes baked, cooled and cut, but when I tried to assemble it, everything went to hell. First, trying to ice a red cake with white icing is impossible. The icing picked up red crumbs when I tried to spread it and the whole thing looked like a muddled mess. Next, when trying to add subsequent layers, they broke and cracked and fell to pieces. The blue layer just sort of sagged around the edges and as a result, ended up breaking and sliding off down the various sides of the cake. Next time, I'll buy a cake and spend my money on alcohol.
