American Flag Cake
July 02, 2015

This cake is absolutely stunning. It takes a lot of time and requires patience, but well worth the effort. I used white chocolate frosting between the layers and butter cream frosting for the sides and top. My rating is for the creative idea, NOT the cake recipe. The cake part of the recipe will leave you scratching your head and a notepad full of scribbles trying to figure out how to adjust. First, I could not find a 10.25 oz cake mix which left me wondering if there was a error when this got published. So, I watched the video and it couldn’t be more vague. It skips over the recipe only saying to use 3 boxes of cake mix and follow the directions on the back of the box. Easy enough, but that’s not the written recipe because the written version clearly modifies the box instructions. My advice is to use your favorite white cake recipe or mix and make 2-8" red cakes, 1 blue, and 1 white and use this recipe for the assembly instructions.
