My 4 day weeks have started! So now through Labor Day weekend I will be off every Friday. I am super excited to take advantage of some extra time with my peanut!
Here is Mommy's little Firecracker!
I was looking to do something fun for July 4th. While searching through blogs and good ole Google I came across 17 and Baking. This is a wonderful blog and inspired me to make her cake.
So, I attempted to make the Flag Cake earlier this week as a trial run. Let me just say that I am NOT a baker. I usually burn everything, so I knew I would need a trial run. Good thing I did too, because the red and blue cakes stuck to the pan and just crumbled. I was so bummed, I threw it away.
So here are my three cakes. All ready to go. It was 2 boxes of White cake, split into 3 equal parts, and then dye 1 blue and 1 red.
Then you begin to layer red and white... Recipe here
So again, I cannot bake but was super excited that it came out PERFECT!
So fun right?! If I make this again I might get those sugar sprinkles for the top because the blue cake kinda carried through the rest of the icing. But again, since I cannot bake, I give myself an A on this project!
We even had enough left over for red, white, and blue Trifle!
That was my back-up plan in case the cakes stuck to the bottom of the pans again!
I hope your Fourth of July weekend was as fabulous as mine! Have a great week!
