Title: Tastes like freedom
Post by: redheadedblonde on July 01, 2019 06:53:27 PM
Happy fourth of July! My children helped me bake this cake this weekend. They each did a unit on the American and Texan flag at daycare (they're three and five), so they are interested in everything red, white, and blue currently.



It's American buttercream and funfetti cake with sugar cookies and a white chocolate drip. It's waaaaaaaaay sweeter than I like, but my boys were thrilled.


Here are some progress pics-I stopped taking them as we worked, so they're limited.

Very cool! Thanks for showing the technique to get the stripes, but my biggest take away is that freedom-flavor is funfetti.  :D

@themistresst lol! Somehow I feel only Americans find funfetti cake appealing. ;-)

That is a masterpiece! Love the blue drips and all those layers, and the cookies look delicious! I don’t mind sweet—bet it tastes amazing.
