Fun & Easy Patriotic-Inspired Cakes

With the 4th of July a few days away, I wanted to share with you some of my favorite fun & easy patriotic-inspired cakes. A cake is always a great choice to bring to any holiday celebration gathering! And it does not have to take a lot of hard work to bring something delicious. These cakes are almost just as easy as making a box cake, I promise!

Fun & Easy Patriotic-Inspired Cake #1: Flag Cake

favorite patriotic cakes for the holiday.

Let’s start with the traditional flag cake we all know and love. This flag cake is my homemade version of the box mix classic that I’m sure you’ve all seen and tried at a 4th of July BBQ before. Making this cake from scratch doesn’t take much longer than mixing together the box ingredients, and it tastes so much better! I used the Perfect White Cake and Vanilla Buttercream Recipe in a 9×13 pan. (Click on that link for the cake and frosting recipe.)

Fun & Easy Patriotic-Inspired Cake #2: Strawberry Shortcake with Fresh Berries

Another beautiful and delicious red, white and blue-inspired cake is this Strawberry Shortcake with Fresh Berries and White Chocolate Frosting. This white chiffon cake is layered with homemade whipped cream, fresh strawberries, and covered in a white chocolate frosting. It’s divine and totally worth your time!

Fun & Easy Patriotic-Inspired Cake #3: Push-Pops

And finally, if you want to get your kids involved, these cake push-pops are the perfect activity for them. Using the same white cake recipe from the flag cake, your littles will love cutting out cake circles and filling the push pops. I bake the cake recipe in a jelly roll pan and use a 2-inch cookie cutter for the cake circles. For frosting, you can use a vanilla or cream cheese buttercream, or whipped cream.

I’m a self-taught baker, obsessed with cake.

I long ago ditched box mixes in pursuit of melt-in-your-mouth, to-die-for flavor combinations, fillings and textures. I believe cake must be decadent, life-changing and worthy of celebration! And I believe anyone should be able to bake that kind of cake – and I’m here to teach you just that!
