We're going to a 4th of July barbecue tomorrow. I am planning on bringing a cake. I have been dying to try a stacked cake with red and white stripes on the bottom and blue with white stars on top (there were several very pretty ones here...)

My question is - it is just too much to bring a two-tiered cake to a barbecue? I am not concerned about time or cost since I want to do it. But I don't want to have it be viewed as just over the top.

Thanks for any thoughts you share...

If you wish to make it and bring it, then do so! Just be careful if it is going to be outside that your cake doesn't slide off in the heat! icon_biggrin.gif

I think you should bring it. You should be proud of what you can do, there are alot of people who can't bake anything. So I would say by all means bring your best cake and show off a little. You will feel so proud of your self. Good Luck. icon_smile.gificon_smile.gif

If you really feel like it, do it, don't worry I think everyone will love you! At the end of the day everyone will close the meal with coffee and cake, yumm!!

I agree with everyone. Especially since its something you want to do. So much better then feeling like you have to make a cake. Have fun with your cake and enjoy! I'm sure everyone will be amazed and appreciate the work you put into your cake.
Good luck! And btw your cake sounds awesome.
