4th of July Cake

July 2009

This was a combination of red velvet cake (box mix) and white cake (box mix – dyed blue). The pink icing was supposed to be red, but I couldn’t get it dark enough.  I used a gel coloring (McCormick, I think). The stars I cut out of cake and covered in a blue glaze icing (powdered sugar, water, blue coloring). I also tried to pipe a shell border on the cake, but the icing wasn’t thin enough. So this cake was a FAIL from a decorating standpoint, but it tasted fine.
