4th of July Flag Cake

FOURTH OF JULY CAKE
 
I love creating special moments for our holiday celebrations, and this fourth of July cake is one of my favorites! It’s such a fun way to get festive, and to bring my kids in to help create something memorable. 


We will definitely be making this on July 4th!!!
 
To start, make your favorite vanilla cake! You can grab a recipe online, or use a mix. Whatever works best for you. I made mine in a 9×13 pan – and sometime if we are feeding a crowd, I will make two to create a giant layer cake!
 
Next, make some whipped cream (or buy some!) and cover the cake on all sides. I love using whipped cream instead of frosting because it feels so much lighter, and I love that during warmer weather.
 
Then comes the fun part! This is great time to include your kids and put their decorating skills to work. You’ll need blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries.
 
Rinse your berries really well (I like to soak mine for a few minutes in Thieve Fruit and Veggie Soak before I rinse), and blot them dry. Quarter your strawberries. I leave the stems on for a little color – but that part is up to you!
 
In the upper lefthand corner, create a square with the blueberries for the stars! Next, you’re going to create your stripes. Just alternate your strawberries and raspberries in each row, and you’re done. 
 
A beautiful cake, fresh fruit, and you have your own star spangled banner, ready for your next get together!
