Im going to attempt making this for the 4th of July. I've never made a cake that involved cutting/ strategically placing inside. Any tips before i start? I will be using a vegan recipe. I'm thinking it might be a good idea to work with frozen layers. And maybe minimal icing in between layers to keep it from falling apart? Hmm. Tips?[postimage id="4415" thumb="900"]
I've made this and it's not difficult. I didn't use any frosting between the blue ring and the other colors and used a cold, not frozen cake. I wished that I had put some white baking chips in the blue for stars.
Sorry, hit the wrong button. I only used red cake and my frosting made the white layers, but I torted the red layers so they were fairly thin. Looked more like a real flag that way.
I like the white chocolate chips idea! I made this cake a few years ago with my (then) 5 year old daughter, back when I did a lot less baking... and it was not as intimidating as it looks. I agree about using cold cake to cut. All the guests loved it, though! I'm sure you'll do just fine!
I did one a couple of years ago it was easier than I expected and was a huge hit at a church potluck!
