Firecracker Cake!!

I just love this festive holiday cake. Amanda and I made this for a purse party she was hosting with her cousin. It was served with fresh strawberries and was incredibly moist.


I got roped into helping only because Amanda's oven has dual personalities and can't decide if its job is to BAKE or BURN food:) We didn't take a picture of the cake after it had been cut, but the inside is as festive as the outside - red, white and blue!


A tutorial can be found on Betty Crocker's website. It was a hit at the party and the men in our lives were grateful for a couple small slices left over for them!

Have a Great Long Weekend and Happy Baking!
