Fourth of July Flag Cake

Independence Day is one of my favorite holidays; the fireworks, the barbeque and the shining patriotism! This flag cake was based on the recipe by Ina Garten. I recommend using the raspberries as they don't let off any moisture onto the cake (like strawberries might when cut), and placing the fruit on the cake before piping the buttercream. If you don't have a piping bag, don't worry!... just use a large plastic bag, place the buttercream inside and cut of a small corner off the bottom of the bag. This cake was chocolate with vanilla buttercream, ...combined with the blueberries and raspberries, its a perfect combo! Best of luck making your flag cakes this weekend, call me if you need help or have any questions! (407) 256-9816
