Week #28 – Happy 4th of July

July 11, 2012 1:23 pm Published by

I’ve always wanted to make one of these American flag cakes where you cut it open and there’s the flag.  So I did 🙂

It’s fairly easy to do.  I baked 2 cakes, one small blue one and a larger red one.  I sliced the red one into 4 layers and kept the blue one in tact.  I cut a hole in 2 of the red layers, the exact size of the blue cake and then put the blue cake inside.  That way when you slice open the cake, you get a nice flag effect.

I had to cover the whole cake in white fondant because the red cake was showing through the white buttercream.  I’m sure next time if I had more time I could have covered the cake with just buttercream but this was a quick and easy way to make the cake look polished.  I topped off the cake with a ruffled swag in patriotic red and blue made from fondant.

We had some people over for the 4th who helped us enjoy it.
