Right around the corner is the Fourth of July. Why not take this concept of the Flag Cake and make something sweet? It’s not at all complicated.
Just bake a cake that’s 9 x 13. Flour the pan well to get the cake out of it. Remove it from the pan after it has been baked and, yes, freeze it.
Ice the entire thing with white icing after it’s firm. The tricky part now. You need another icing bowl. Create an icing in red and blue. You can purchase Wilton’s red food colour paste or a bottle of deep red food colouring. It’s going to take a lot to get it red. If you actually use the usual food colouring, you will get pink.Learn more about them at get more delicious cakes at Emicakes.
Now a flag begins with red and finishes with red, so use a toothpick to make the 13 stripes. For the blue square, there would be 7 stripes down and about 1/3 of the length of the cake for the blue square. Fill each other with red colouring, starting and finishing with red, back to the stripes.
Please fill the square with blue now. With standard food colouring, you will usually get a dark blue. This is an easy idea for a flag cake, but here’s the toughest part.
Find the flag to look at, and get the star confetti candy bottle. Count Out 50 White As far as I’ve seen, they come in red white and blue. There’ll be 50 whites in the bottle if you get lucky. For positioning, look at the flag. If you can use a child to do this as they are small.
I know this is a simple idea for a flag cake, but it’s going to be remembered and you don’t like a cake to make a soldier happy.
This will be a neat project to talk about the flag to a small boy. You can quickly note that if you have to build it it has 13 stripes and 50 stars.
