OMGOSH! How in the world did you do that? I've never seen anything quite so spectacular before!!! You need to send this over to Martha Stewart (run don't walk) or someother big food guru and show this puppy off and get some big kudos for it! This has now catapulted you into star status in my eyes Amanda (not that you were far off before). Simply AMAZING!!!!!!

I don't think it's too busy at all. My Dad would go nuts over this cake!

Hehe you saw my flag cake, right? It was totally awesome, until I realized what I'd written on top... http://www.beckibakes.com/?s=flag+cake

Oh, Amanda! This is STUNNING!!! I'm calling my husband over to the computer right now so he can be ashamed of his wife who calls herself a "baker." Um....you NEED a bakery. You are the NEXT Cake Boss....bossette...something.

Peggy Gorman

You are an amazing baker! I am always so happy to see your cakes and the lovely surprises ! Thanks for sharing! Happy 4th of July!!


Wonderful job - again! Love the inside. You are insanely talented - keep it up.

Amalia Standard

LOVE it all.... I thought the picture on the cake was spectacular....definitely not too busy!!! And the inside....well it just makes my mind boggle even trying to figure out HOW you do that!! You are amazing and I always look forward to your posts!

Jessica @ How Sweet

How on earth do you make these wonderful creations?! I know I sound like a broken record, but I am just blown away.


Freakishly Festive :) Ok, not so freakish, I just like to have to words with the same letter when describing something LOL yep, I'm a weirdo! Well done. I love it.
You still have time before the 4th, how about a cake with fireworks inside? :)


OH MY WORD!!! How on EARTH do you continue to awe me?!!! Amanda you are AMAZING!!! this is incredible........makes the cupcakes I was going to make seem like kids play! lol

Jamie | My Baking Addiction

Whoa!! The inside of this cake is amazing! Fantastic work!



It is perfect. Beautiful before you cut it and after.


What an amazing cake!! I love seeing the flag when you cut into the cake and the outer decorations are lovely. You amaze me!

Amanda Sikes

That is a great cake. I never get to make many fun 4th of July desserts because my daughters birthday is the 3rd so we have birthday cake instead. Maybe one year she will pick a patriotic theme.


That is gorgeous!! I don't think it is too much at all - in fact it is always so much fun to see what is inside of your cakes!! I wish I could make one of these for my family - it's a beautiful cake for a fun holiday!! As always, I can't wait to see what you share with us next!


That is so damn impressive! How'd it taste???

Home Baked

Fantastic cake, Amanda!
As soon as the email update came through I was hoping for something fancy inside and you didn't disappoint!

Joy Ellis

I love patriotism food. And this is absolutely awesome Amanda! I do not think you over did it. It looks beautiful. I am honestly going to try my hand at making this cake. It would be a wonderful dessert for the 4th of July. Or even Veterans or Memorial Day. You have been blessed with such talent and I appreciate you sharing it with us. May God bless you and your family. :)


I totally agree with the hubby! Not too busy at all. I love this! You are awesome!!


Shut up! that is the most AWESOME thing I have EVER SEEn!!


AWESOME CAKE..........I WANT ONE!!!!!!!!!


O.K. Amanda ~ this one really takes the cake! You are so gifted in your creative baking talents. WOW is about all I can say for this one WOW!


If you can't be over the top on the 4th of July, when can you be?? This is a cake that screams firecrackers and picnics.

You did a super job with Uncle Sam and the red white and blue motif is smashing. But then when you cut into it, I laughed out loud. I LOVE IT! Darn, I wish I was clever enough to make something like this. No, not asking for "yes you cans" I know I can't!

Leslie Jackson

I love it! I saw the cake and clicked on the post JUST to see what you put inside! :) I personally don't think it's too busy with the inside and outside....cause when you see the inside, the outside is already shrinking from being cut! :)

Amanda Rettke

Ha ha, I have the whole thing over here if you want 2 day old cake. Its all yours girl! :)


I don't think it's too busy at all! Though it WOULD have seemed a lot more stylised if the outside was just plain. Plain white, with some cryptic message on top (or maybe just "USA") and then the inside... WHAM! Awesome.

I wonder if there's any kind of white candy that you could mix into the blue batter so that it would look like stars? That would be beyond awesome.


Erica B.

I don't think its too busy at all. Another great design!


I adore this cake! You are so creative! The design is awesome befitting the occasion! I think it's a wonderful cake design both outside and inside..it's soo cool!


Wow!!! Again, you continue to amaze me!!! I love getting your updates and so enjoy seeing your wonderful creations!!! Keep 'em coming! Hope all is well with you and yours! Hugs! :)


Oh Betsy Ross! You've out Americanned yourself! I think Buddy would be proud...and I know that because we're besties...er not.. Wow! Bet it tastes fabulous!


this came out GORGEOUS ! i'm jealous of your cake skills . love the innards !

much love ! <3



Kristin Smith

Love it Amanda!! You always are so creative...how do you think these things up? I think you need to host an Amanda's Creations blogger party...you do all the baking of your amazing creations and then us bloggy friends will come and roast your work and tell you how awesome you are!! :) What do you think. I realize it means you are stuck doing all the work for your own party but that is a sacrafice we are all willing to make! :) haha

Seriously though....I am amazed once again! Have a great weekend!


AManda! Could you be any more awesome??????

Ann @ House of Estrogen

WOW! WOW!!! WOW!!! It is perfection! Don't do anything differently! The inside is AWESOME!! I think that is my favorite ever of all the "design on the inside" cakes you've ever done! I love it! You've totally inspired me to do a red, white, and blue cake next week! I don't think I can manage the flag thing (although I might have to try!), but I can do layers or something! That is fantastic.


That is totally awesome!!!! I love the outside but, the inside is over the top...looks like alot of work...was it???


I don't think you overshot the basket at all. It looks absolutely fabulous to me. I love the multicoloured sponges you do and the patterns and designs you make with them. Why shouldn't the inside of the cake look every bit as fabulous as the outside?!!


Wow, I love it! You think the outside looks nice then bam, you're blown away by the inside even more. I wouldn't change a thing, the slices look amazing. Great work!

Michelle M.

This is so creative! Great job!

Lauren @ Crave. Indulge. Satisfy.

This is truly amazing! As soon as I saw the outside decorations I knew for sure you were going to WOW us with something creative on the inside too! What a unique cake for a 4th of July celebration!

Erica @ Just Call Me Cheap

That is a neat cake! I just started decorating my own cakes recently and really enjoy doing it- hopefully I will get to be as good as you soon!


I just wish we could taste through the internet!


Oh Amanda...imagine me having to pick my jaw up off the floor as I'm scrolling down....SURPRISE...check out the inside!!! Great cake - TFS!


So creative - great cake!


Awesome cake!! Love the stripes-looks so cool:)


perfect. not only would i never have thought to do this, i wouldn't have the slightest idea how to accomplish it. bravo.
also, i love the goatee. :)


You know, a couple days ago I was watching that America's Got Talent show with my parents, and there was some chick on there that rolled herself around in paint and then rolled around on a sheet to make an American flag. Only it was really really really really really really really terribad. I mean it was painful and embarassing just to watch. I felt sorry for her.

All that is leading up to - DEAR GOD NOW *THIS* IS THE WAY YOU MAKE AN AMERICAN FLAG IN AN ORIGINAL AND INSPIRING WAY, PEOPLE. This is so awesome. I'm Canadian, but I feel the need to salute this totally awesome cake*.

*Disclaimer: Writer may or may not tend to stand at attention and salute any or all cake that comes her way. Writer may or may not consider 'salute' to mean 'attack with a fork'.


I've been brainstorming a similar cake (flag design when cut into) and now I don't have to! Love it!


No this is perfect! A masterpiece! You, Amanda, are one very talented lady. I'm so impressed!!


I agree with the hubby. (And I tell the truth because I don't have the risk of sleeping on the couch like he does! LOL) Seriously, though, not too busy at all. Because once you cut it up, you don't see all the stuff on the outside as well. So you have the outside for when it's all one piece, and then you have the inside bonus when you cut it up. And I am just so impressed that you thought to put 2 blue sections in there so that when you cut it up the piece looks like a flag. I NEVER would have thought of that and I didn't even get why you did it until I saw a piece cut up! LOL Great job and I was excited to see glaze on a cake since I'd been throwing around doing that myself but wasn't sure how it would turn out!


Haha - I knew there would be a surprise inside ;)

Awesome idea! It looks great!
