I had a patriotic themed cake to make for a U.S. citizenship gathering, and decided to make this simple, tiered cake. This cake is all iced in buttercream with fondant details. I thought the spray of stars for the topper would resemble a burst of fireworks to add height to the cake. The only thing I regret was not getting a chance to take a picture of the inside of the cake :-( I made the inside red, white and blue to look like the American flag in each slice of cake. I guess I will have to re-attempt this for Independence Day! Until next time!
