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 ;)

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 ;)

use milk

use milk

Instead of water in cakes or brownies, etc., use milk instead! makes the cakes more moist! i've been baking-decorating cakes for over a year and i absolutely LOVE IT!!!



Well, as we all kinow, spraying oil in the mold its the "must do it" tip, but for some reason that never worked for me, even though I follow the recipes step by step. So one day, when my sister little was helping me, she used butter instead of oil, I asked why and she said, "who cares, nothing's gonna happen" so I went with it, and guess what? the cake baked perfectly, for the firt time in God knows how long, one of my cakes baked like they do in TV, I was thrilled and I've been using butter for my molds ever since, It even add a special falvor to it ;) Like I said, I don't know if some people already knew about this, but, if you don't, now you do :D kisses <3
