firecracker cake

June 25, 2011

You know me and how I like to mix colored batter! My friend Amy sent me this link to the Betty Crocker Firecracker cake  and I am going to give it a  go for sure!  It looks more forgiving than a true rainbow cake which has to be more exact- this could look like messy fireworks if things head that way. Are you making anything red, white and blue for the 4th?

    Happy 4th! I am teaching summer school for 3 year olds with special needs. We will be “cooking” 4th of July Sparklers. Melt white chocolate in the mocrowave. Dip pretzel sticks into the melted chocolate about 3/4 of the way down. I use the small 3 inch sticks, but you can use pretzel rods too. Shake red and blue sprinkles in top. Let the chocolate harden and enjoy. These sparklers are safe and tasty!

      Hi Coleen!! This is such a great reminder- I love doing chocolate dipped pretzel rods for the holidays. I haven’t tried it with the shorter sticks but that would be even easier for my 3 year old. Super cute idea! happy 4th!

    Wow! I think the kids and I may need to make this next week!!!! In the past, I have done the “cookie pizza” thing in a rectangular pan. Spread cream cheese mixed with whipped cream on large cookie and then used strawberries for the stripes and blueberries for the stars. It is super easy and a crowd pleaser:-)

      This cake looks fun to make! We may do a pound cake with fresh whipped cream, and blueberries and strawberries/raspberries. Layer the crumbled pound cake with cream and them berries. Make two layers in a glass bowl so you can see the different colors. Also very easy and yummy.
