Flag Cake

My best friend Megan and I have a tradition on the 4th of July to always make a flag cake together. Usually it's a regular rectangular cake, iced, with strawberries and blueberries on the top to make the flag. But this year I decided to take it up a notch (or two).

As someone that hates to bake I was unusually excited about this long baking process. Maybe it was the fact that I had so many loved ones in town that made me willing to put in the work. I found a Betty Crocker Recipe online and was excited to start. However, after reading the instructions I was confused on how to put everything together. So in case you're more of a visual person, like I am, I found this Video for you to watch that will really help.
Nicole and I spent Friday afternoon baking, cooling, cutting, and placing the cake together. It was really fun and people were totally surprised when we cut into it.

How was your 4th?


  1. This is so impressive! Trying a cake with a design like this on the inside is definitely on my list of things to try...one day! It looks perfect!

  2. Holy wow, Lauren!!! That's amazing! I need to make that someday! I'm impressed!

  3. Oh my gosh! This is the cutest!!! I love it!!!! I like to think I enjoy baking - but really I think I enjoy the baked goodies... haha I would like to practice more with baking, maybe I'll try something like this! Was it hard?


I love hearing from you so please leave a comment, however keep in mind "Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones."
