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

Fat Free and no cholesterol

Fat Free and no cholesterol

Always use a product such as "Better'n Eggs/"Egg Beaters" etc in place of whole fresh eggs and substitute the oil/butter step with applesauce(the kind with no sugar added or nything else. Usually 1/3 cup of applesauce for a 1/3 cup of oil. You may have to experiment with the amount. For added leavening-try using 1/3 cup of egg product instead of 1/4 cup.


Best-Tasting Fudgy Brownies Ever!

Best-Tasting Fudgy Brownies Ever!

I discovered the only thing wrong with DH Double Fudge Decadent brownie mix is lack of chocolate flavor. Add 3/5ths of a Lindt Excellence 70% Cocoa bar, chopped into 1/8th inch pieces to the Fudgy Brownies recipe for the best flavor ever. There's just something about the flavor of this particular chocolate that works with this mix. I've tried other brands, other % cocoa, and other amounts of added chocolate and this is best. Bake at 325F 35 min in glass pan dredged with butter & cocoa powder
