Celebrate the Fourth with this flag layer cake recipe from Frisco Style

Prep Time: 45 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour

Servings: 1 cake



  1. Prepare all three cake batters according to instructions on the box. Add red food coloring to one batter, blue to another, and leave the third white.
  2. Divide batters into 9-inch round pans (each box of mix should make two layers) and bake as directed on box.
  3. Let the layers completely cool. Level off the top of each cake. Stack the five layers using a fruit spread or frosting of your choice to hold them together.
  4. Stack a whole red layer and a whole white layer then cut the remaining red, white and blue cakes in half.
  5. To stack the remaining layers of the cake, alternate half of a blue layer of cake and half of a red layer of cake, then stack a half blue and half white layer and then stack a half blue layer and a half red layer of cake. (You will have half of a white cake and half of a blue cake left).
  6. Ice and decorate the cake however you would like. Use melting candies to create stars or fireworks.
