A Little Late

I know July has come and gone, but a promise is a promise. One of the goals on my Project 52 list was to make an awesome flag cake. 

I've always wanted to make a flag dessert for the 4th of July. Usually, my ideas have consisted of using blueberries and strawberries to make stripes on top of a cake. Until I found this cake on Pinterest:

Wow! How cool is that? I decided that I was up for the challenge. I started a few days ahead so I could freeze the layers. It was a little tricky, I won't deny it. 

This is how my cake turned out. Not quite Martha Stewart quality, but, not bad for my first attempt. I thought I had cut my slices much more evenly, but the evenness (or in my case, unevenness) was hard to tell until everything was all sliced, iced, and stacked.
Here is how to make this little ditty:

Opps! My center layers were a little too high. I just took off the top layer, and may have eaten it while working on the rest of the cake.

(Admittedly, I felt like draping my cake in black as we had just received the stab in the back from Supreme Court Justice Roberts about Obamacare, on June 30. However, I just might feel like baking my cake again after tomorrow night.)

Hopefully, you have made an educated decision on which candidate you want to vote for to be the next President of the United States. It is our privilege and responsibility as citizens of a free country to be informed. Remember, men and women have died to preserve our freedom. Vote!

May God bless the United States of America!

Until next time,


  1. I have a blog buddy from Switzerland and even they are concerned about our election. An election cake that yummy may make whatever happens a good thing. I hope and pray for our country too.

  2. My fingers are crossed that the country comes to their senses and saves itself from those who want to turn us into a country we are not meant to be.

    I will also pray that you get to make your beautiful cake again tonight while playing the "I just want to Celebrate" song.

    Fingers crossed and toes crossed, eyes crossed and hair crossed. Please, please is my prayer to God.

    God bless.

  3. I am so impressed that you made so many cakes and stacked them all up like that. Love the way you think you may have eaten that discarded layer!

  4. Dearest Darlene,
    Oh, I have a sweet teeth and wished to be invited to enjoyed it(^^;) Must be a lot of work and I admire for it.
    I did follow about the news of the election. I admire the system in your country that you can vote directly for your president, which we cannot.
    Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

  5. That is AWESOME! And WAY too much work for me.
