American Flag Cake
July 06, 2015

This cake is time consuming but WORTH IT! The presentation is so impressive and a crowd pleaser. I went with other suggestions and left the cake plain white on the outside with simple piping and some white sugar glitter with a few white chocolate chips sprinkled on top and two small American flags that I crossed and had standing in the cake. So when it is sliced... Wow! My tips for baking. I didn't have clear vanilla so I left it out until I divided and colored the batter and used my regular vanilla in the colored batter and I used almond extract in the white portion. Also I freeze the white chocolate chips then toss them in flour before adding them in the blue batter. You will see the stars. Lastly after i bake the layers and they are still hot. Using a pot holder to protect my hand, I press the cake firmly into the pans. This evens out the layers and makes them more dense which makes them easier to slice after they have cooled. They will still be very moist. I used a cream cheese frosting for the middle and I used a whipped cooked buttercream frosting for the outside. Definitely use parchment paper for baking and put your layers cut side down to make frosting easier. The flavor was great and it's a very delicious cake! I have already received requests for next year. Loved it!
