the Hidden American Flag Cake

ERVINA GUNAWAN Recipe shared by:
| Follow this Baker

This cake is a perfect choice if you want to impress and surprise all the guests. You only need simple white icing (maybe with some sprinkles on top) to cover the cake. Give the honor to one of your guest to cut the cake and you'll see his/her surprise face while he/she's cutting the cake. Thank you "17 and Baking" for her inspiration ;)

Ingredients

  • 2 boxes of Moist Deluxe Classic White Cake Mix (1-tint with Royal Blue, 1-keep white)
  • 1 box of Moist Deluxe Strawberry Supreme Cake Mix (tint with Red No-Taste)
  • Food Color Gel: Witlon Red No-Taste & Wilton Royal Blue
  • White Icing: Buttercream or Whipped Cream of your choice
  • Pudding or Icing for between the layers
  • Red & Blue Sprinkles

Baking Instructions

  1. Bake 1-white cake, 1-blue cake, and 1-red cake in 9x13 rectangular pan
  2. Slice the red and white cake horizontally in 3-same height. Cut the blue cake vertically into 4-same width (9" divide 4), we only need 2-pcs of 1/4 of the blue cake.
  3. The stacking order is: red (1st slice), white (1st slice), red (2nd slice), white (2nd slice). Spread with pudding/icing in between layers before you stack the cake slices.
  4. Next, cut the 3rd slices of red & white into 2-same width (9" divide 2). Stack (red, white, red) on the center of the cake, then put the 1/4 of blue cake on the right & left side of the cake. Remember to spread with pudding/icing in between to make all the layers stay together.
  5. Cover the cake with buttercream/whipped cream and it's ready to SURPRISE everyone.
  6. To serve it: cut in half the long-side of the cake, then slice it to serve to the guests, so everyone could get the flag-cake.
  7. Enjoy... Happy Baking ;)

Tips

Filling Your Decorating Bag

Filling Your Decorating Bag

If you have small hands like me, you're going to love this idea. Get yourself a vase that allows you to put your decorating bag inside. Open up the bag and insert chosen decorating tube. Place bag into vase, overlapping the bag over the sides of the top. After doing this you can easily fill the bag with your frosting.


cake box cookie - not

cake box cookie - not

Ok what not to do. Started making the double choc. cake box cookies. I was co-pilot and my wife in the pilot's seat. Half way through I realize she has somehow combined the cake recipe and the cookie recipe. We attempted to fix - She added 3 eggs 1 cup water while I prepped the nuts, butter, vanilla and chips. I stopped her and started 'fixing'. Added just over 1/4 cup of flour as well as the other ingredients, mixed and hoped for the best. Well they are cookie shaped and soft and moist not really a cookie and too flat to be cake. But as I was eating one I had an epiphany. They would be perfect for whoopie cakes! Now I have to make some frosting.
