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.

Happy 235th Birthday America! You dont look a day over 200. ;)
