Happy 4th of July!

Monday, July 4, 2011

Happy 4th everyone! Hope you are enjoying a day filled with sunshine, BBQ's, and fireworks! We're getting ready to head out to claim our firework watching spot but I wanted to show you a fun "firework cake" that I made for today.

I followed this recipe from Creative Baking Fun - it was easy, and I loved how the cake looked like a firework (in my mind anyways!). I mixed up my cake mix, dyed the appropriate portions of batter, layered it in the pan, and popped it in the oven.

Here it is post bake.

The part that I knew I would struggle with was drizzling the frosting over the cake. I've never been a very good drizzler. But the recipe said to microwave the frosting first and it worked! I drizzled like a pro!! After I was done getting my red, white, and blue frosting on the cake I sprinkled some star shaped sprinkles on top.

This is the finished product:

I love this cake. It was super easy to make, looks really festive, and is tasty too! Anyone else bake up a Fourth of July treat? Hope you're having a lovely holiday!!
