Red, White, and Blue Cake

Memorial Day signifies many things to many people. My Grandmother would visit the graves of family members. For others, it is the parade and remembering lost service members. For us, it signifies my husband's birthday since often his birthday falls on the holiday. Well, I had to make him a patriotic cake. My sister found the idea on pinterest and sent it to me. I decided to try making star shapes. I did learn that the cake needs to be frozen so it is easy to cut out the shapes. Also, I used the rest of the red and blue cake to make my bottom layer so I didn't waste any cake. I liked the affect. I used this cake recipe.  The best part of making this cake is my daughter helped.
Red, White, and Blue Cake

  1. Freeze the red cake and the blue cake for 1 hour.
  2. Cut out the star shapes from the frozen cake.
  3. Place the cut out cooked red and blue cake stars into the white cake batter.
  4. Make sure the cut out star shapes are covered by the white cake batter.
  5. Bake the white cake as normal.
  6. Once cooked, frost as desired and serve.
