I have made a flag cake before. It was ok. But I wanted to kick it up a notch. Make something really wild that no one* had done before.
*There is a reason no one had done it. Its crazy.
I decided to make a cake that was twenty five layers.
Um. Why would one decide to do something that is seemingly impossible and has no historical accuracy or reference?
I don’t know.
Banging. Head. Against. Wall. Repeatedly.
I think I had too many cups of coffee the day I decided to make this.
That being said, I decided to continue my blogs ‘ruffle’ theme and make vertical stripes on the exterior.
Pretty little red, white, and blue ruffles. I think I am addicted.
How does one serve a twenty five layer cake?
By chopping it in half thats how!
Then I cut myself a slice, hummed at little America the Beautiful and had a bite.
Red Velvet Cake with White Cake with buttercream frosting.
Here’s to you! I am hoping you are enjoying your long weekend, that you are soaking up the sun, that you are giving yourself a break and relaxing, and that you are with people you love.

what tip did you use to make the ruffles?
Happy 4th of July!
I would like to know how to share some photos with you. I made a version of this cake this weekend for my family and it was a hits. Thank you for sharing your ideas with us!
I was frustrated that so many ‘flag’ cakes didn’t have the correct number of stripes- but I only used red cake and used buttercream for the white stripes. Yes- it made for a VERY rich and decadent cake- but it was a bit more tolerable to take a bite out of. 🙂 I did the blue part in the middle,instead of around the cake as you did. But I completely respect your choice! But- my family is a fan of frosting- so they like more frosting than cake. 😉
This cake rocks! What tip size is it? 127? 401? Thanks!
