When I saw this post at 17 and Baking a few weeks ago, I knew that I really wanted to attempt this SUPER cute flag cake for the 4th of July.
And here is what my cake looked like:
When the first two layers broke into a million pieces as I tried to turn them out of the pan, I kind of figured my flag cake wasn't going to happen this year. I finished baking the last layer, and tried my best to cut the cake the way the original recipe said. I even put the layers in the freezer to make them easier to cut.
Nothing was helping this sad, crumbly, red, white, and blue mess! In my frustration, I just dumped the cake into the lid of my cake keeper and moved on to making cupcakes with the remaining batter. Unfortunately, the cupcakes came out just as crumbly!
Needless to say, I showed up to my family's 4th of July cook out with a store bought Angel Food cake, some strawberries, and Cool Whip:)
