|July 4th Flag Cake|
So, I know... the 4th was last week. I have not been the best blog poster lately, but I really do plan to do a better job by posting at least 2-3 times a week.
This is a cake I make every year. This year I did it a little different. Instead of piping the white lines with cream cheese frosting... I sprinkled powdered sugar on top of the blueberries and raspberries. The key is to place the blueberries and raspberries that you want to "sugar" on the cake first. (Actually, I spread cream cheese frosting on top of the cake first to act as "glue" for the berries to stick to). I sifted powder over the rows of berries, then I placed the "non" powdered berries on the cake.
I keep this really simple. I usually just make a box strawberry cake and make my own frosting. I sometimes use the tub o' frosting. The presentation is fun, and the cake is usually moist.
This is not a true "flag" replica. I was afraid I'd run out of raspberries if I put in the full 13 rows.
