Red, White & Blue Layer Cake

Happy Friday! You may have seen this festive cake on Instagram last week, and I just wanted to write a quick post about it for you guys!

4th of July is almost upon us. I know you’re probably already planning out your menus and thinking about delicious things to grill. But dessert is also important, right?


This cake is not only fun to look at, but I seriously had fun making it! It’s six (six!) layers with ruffly frosting and tiny, silver stars. The decorations were inspired by a lot of the ruffly 4th of July decorations that people usually put up. I hope you know what I’m talking about, haha.

The layers are fairly thin, with thin layers of buttercream frosting. I baked these two layers at a time, which works really well if you only have two 8 inch cake pans. I have four, so I reused two of them. Disposable aluminum cake pans would also be a good option here if you can find them.

For the recipe and the instructions, check out the post on Best Friends for Frosting!
