I’m Finally Making It…..A Patriotic Cake!

Flag Veggie Tray   Yup, I am finally doing it. I have looked at pictures of patriotic cakes, vegetable trays, fruit trays and such for years and always say "Aren't those cute! I am so going to do that." And then I never do. 

Well this year I have the perfect opportunity because I am going to a BBQ on Sunday the 3rd of July and need to bring an item. Since cake is WAY more fun than vegetables or fruit and I love to bake, I am making the cake.

I hunted for recipes over the internet because of course I had never saved any when I saw them. There were some that were cute but just plain cake underneath. I was already contemplating in my head how to doctor it up when I found this one. Who doesn't love Strawberry jello and white chocolate pudding inside their cake!

So…here is the cake I am making. I wish I could tell you it turned out great but I am not making it until Sunday morning so check back…I will let you know.
