Happy 4th of July!  The Independence Day holiday is less than a week away and I wanted to present you with a gift that I worked on with Allrecipes.com.  Here it is!  The photos behind the shoot of the American Flag Cake and the video on how to put this incredibly gorgeous and patriotic cake together.

I know I keep on saying how fun my work projects can be, and this one surely was not an exception.  In fact, this might have been one of the more complicated projects, making it that much more rewarding at the end.  You and your family will oooh and aaah when you slice into this cake.


Bake the cake – we used a cake box mix and added food color to create red and white layers.  The blue layers has a surprise inside!

Bake the layers and cut out the right number and amount to assemble the cake.
Frost the cake and use the leftover crumbs to decorate the top in a pattern of the American flag.

The cake is ready!

Now that you have seen the photos I took behind the scene during the shoot, it’s time for the video!
