July 4th Flag Cake

I just wanted to show a quick July 4th Cake that my wife and I made yesterday to celebrate America’s Independence Day!

This flag cake is now one of our favorite July 4th recipes, and can be found on page 239 of The America’s Test Kitchen Family Baking Book (one of our new favorite cookbooks):


One important note: when America’s Test Kitchen Recipes tell you to use unsalted butter in the frosting…listen! We had to redo the frosting. America’s Test Kitchen doesn’t throw unnecessary ingredients or steps into their recipes, just to make them seem more fancy. They create their recipes with precision, so pay attention.

Our family & friends sure loved this cake! Do you have some July 4th recipes that you would like to share? If so, please send me photos & recipes, and if I love them, I’ll feature them on JoshLovesIt.com!

Here are some of our other absolute favorite cook books (notice that they are all America’s Test Kitchen…they’re the best!):

    Love the cake. Glad you and your family had a happy 4th!
