SALUTING THE MEN AND WOMEN OF OUR MILITARY with a RED, WHITE, & BLUE FLAG CAKE!
Here’s our All-American recipe:
For the cake you will need 48 standard size cupcakes, and 48 mini cupcakes. (This cake feeds your whole platoon!)
- Spread vanilla frosting on 36 standard sized cupcakes and set aside. Spread blue frosting on 12 standard sized cupcakes and 6 mini cupcakes.
- Arrange white candy in patterns on each blue cupcake to make the stars. (We used white Good & Plentys, Sixlets, white M&Ms and Baby Tears. We even used Chiclets.)
- Arrange the standard size cupcakes on a large serving platter in a flag-shaped rectangle 8 cupcakes across and 6 cupcake deep, placing the standard size blue cupcakes in the upper left corner 4 across and 3 deep. Sit the mini blue cupcake on top of and between the standard size blue cupcakes.
- Spread red frosting on 42 mini cupcakes and decorate with red candies. (We placed Red Hots, Hot Tamales, swedish fish, red Twizzler pieces and red jelly beans. RED is one of the most popular candy colors, so we’re sure you’ll come up with something all your own.) Place the red mini cupcakes on top of and between the white cupcakes to create stripes.
