I made a Flag Cake !

I simply used 3 cake mixes
1 duncan heniz red velvet
2 pillsbury french vanilla  ( one i then dyed blue)

I then split the red and the white cakes horizonially and layered two of them on my cake pans like this


Then out of the remaining half layers of red and white cake I cut a circle ( about 5 in in Diam.) and discarded ( aka fed to the kids) the outer rings

Next I tool the full layer of the blue cake and cut and discarded (yummy) a circle of the same size

Then i layered them ( adding frosting as "mortar" between layers)

so you have this
circle of redcircle of white
blue outer ring
RED 1/2 layer
WHITE 1/2 layer

I hope that makes sense and then you get this

Innocent looking! I used a baby bottle nipple, soda caps and a pop top dipped in food coloring to make the bubbles!

INSIDE -surprise

Close up!


I've never made a layered cake before ( ok my SIL helped lol) and I've never entered a contest on here either....

Thanks for looking!

One last pic....look at the size of that slice!
