Here is my version of the patriotic cake I've seen all over blog land. It looks a little messy but (I think) it came out great. The best compliment...people at church thought it was store bought. :)I have to give credit to 17 and Baking. I first saw the cake at I am Baker and followed the link to 17 and Baking where I was able to watch a video clip of how she made the cake. It's surprisingly easy.
I thought it was kind of funny when I showed a picture of the cake to my husband...he told me how he thought it was done and you know what? He was RIGHT! :)
