I am SO excited that summer is finally here. Today is actually our LAST DAY of school, and to celebrate I am sharing this Red White & Blue Patriotic Layer Cake. I am looking forward to sun, fun, and yummy recipes like this all summer long.
One of my favorite things about summer is that I get to spend a little more time with the kids. Not only that, but the nights are so much easier without the rush for baths and homework and everything else that goes along with a busy school year. I LOVE to celebrate with get-togethers, and this dessert will make everyone happy.
Easy Patriotic Layer Cake Recipe
Layer cakes are always so much fun to make. You can really do so many different things with them. In fact, I will share a few of my most popular layer cakes at the end of this blog post!
To get started with this patriotic dessert, you need to grab three of your favorite brand of vanilla cakes mixes. This is always the fun part. My youngest loves to be in the kitchen when it’s time to make cakes and add food coloring.
Once you have the mix with the perfect colors, pour them each into a separate 8 or 9 inch round cake pan. Bake each per the directions that accompanied the cake mix. You’re going to have fun decorating this yummy layer cake next!
Perfect Fourth of July Desserts
This is such a perfect cake for any Memorial Day or Fourth of July parties. It’s simple, easy, and everyone loves how it looks and tastes!
You can layer your cake in any order you wish, but I love the layers with red on the bottom.
Once you have all of the cakes baked and stacked with icing in between, it’s time to start decorating.
Add some strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, the sky is the limit. You can also serve this delicious cake with ice cream! Who doesn’t like cake and ice cream?
