  • Firecracker Cake

    Firecracker Cake for 4th of July

    This is a "Firecracker Cake" - named after the "firecrackers" on top.

    The firecrackers are made out of marshmallows on a skewer that have been coated with red, edible spray paint, and then topped with a flattened, round gummy yellow candy. Coming out of the firecrackers is red licorice.

    Patriotic Cake with red, white and blue layers for 4th of July

    Inside the cake, the layers are red, white and blue! Make a white cake with three layers, and before baking each layer stir in some food coloring!

    Even if you choose a different design for the outside of the cake, doing the inside like this makes a very patriotic cake!
