JULY 4th: American Flag Cake

What a great dessert surprise for July 4th!

This flag cake originated on 17andBak­ing.com, and was reposted on SecretLifeOfAChefsWife.com.

Elissa, who posted the recipe at age 17 (she’s now 21), said at the time:

“While I wish I could claim credit for it, the idea of a flag cake was completely my father’s. It was all a bit of an experiment and when I finally cut the cake open, revealing the familiar red white and blue, I was so surprised to see that it worked.”

You can use any recipe for a three layer white cake. Elissa deliberately made the cake completely white on the outside, with a cream cheese frosting flavored with lime zest. Cutting into a plain cake makes the flag motif an even bigger surprise.

Are you dying to make it? Here’s the recipe.
