It's almost here...
that summer night when we sit on a blanket in the grass with our family,
gazing upwards in awe as fireworks shoot across the dark sky
and explode above our heads in a blaze of light and color!
Don't you just love pyrotechnics??
Here is a fun Fireworks Cake you can make for the 4th of July!
Make a white cake mix.
Divide the batter into 3 bowls.
Leave one bowl white, dye one red and one blue.
Line the bottoms of 2 eight inch cake pans with wax paper and grease the sides.
Layer the batter in your pans, dropping by spoonfuls.
For marble effect: Drag a knife through the batter, making lines in a side to side motion;
then repeat this motion going up and down.
Be careful not to mix the colors together.
Bake your cake as directed, and cool completely.
Frost your cake with white frosting, making the top as smooth as possible.
Put the cake in the freezer for at least 45 minutes to harden the frosting.
Read a good book while you wait...
Take your cake out of the freezer.
With gel food coloring, make a line of dots from the middle of the cake to the outside edge.
Starting at the outside dot, brush over the dots toward the center with a paint brush.
Clean your brush, and repeat all the way around your cake.
Work with one color at a time, and do not overlap them.
I also pressed star shaped sprinkles into the frosting on the bottom.
Serve up some cake before the fireworks start...
