My Pin: The Sugar Turntable’s American Flag Cake
|American Flag Cake Recipe on The Sugar Turntable|
My Project: American Flag Birthday Cake
Chilling the cakes before, during and after icing was crucial to my success. The colder the layers were, the easier it was to frost, the less crumbs I picked up. Also, the $3 wire cake cutter I picked up at Hobby Lobby was so necessary for cutting the layers. I never could have done it free-hand. Although it took quite bit of time (I think like 3-4 hours from pulling out the ingredients to shaking on some golden sugar sprinkles), this cake is totally worth it for the one-time WOW factor! I’m sure you could even make it a day ahead of your party and store in the refrigerator. In addition to the obvious choice- Fourth of July, this cake would be great for Veteran’s Day, Flag Day, a deployment homecoming or really just any day you wake up thinking about how much you love America.
