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...

That's what I was going to do for a cookout tonight...I got overruled because they wanted the Key Lime Mousse Cake I make because it is cold. I did dip some strawberries with white and blue chocolate, too. I say go for it...when that was my plan, I just figured I would leave some of the leftover cake for everyone to share.

My family is getting used to me going above and beyond on cakes!

Hi Penny

No have fun with it. depending on the number of people, just do it on a smaller scale. Like a 6' and 10" cakes would be very nice and not over the top.

Have a good holiday, we in canada have already had ours.
