Going to a party?
Are you having a party?
Looking for something fun and sweet for the Fourth of July?
Reminds me of my Christmas Wreath Cake!
Happy Fourth of July!
I love the holiday season. Most people seem friendlier, warmer and just down right jolly. Our lovely neighbors invited our family to a holiday block party. On the invitation, it asked that we bring a plate of goodies. I wanted to do it up with something extra special because these are some very sweet people.
Introducing the Betty Crocker Christmas Wreath Cake –
Into the oven it went. Then it was time for the frosting.
When it came time for the green frosting my husband was a little enchanted with my artistic baking abilities. He watched over with the cutest curiosity. He actually suggested I darken the green frosting after the first layer of green to add depth to the color of the cake. It would appear he’s not that much of a Neanderthal after all.
At the neighbor’s house the cake was a hit. It came out super moist and was super yummy. It looks different from the Betty Crocker picture above, but it was fun to do and I can’t wait to try something like this again.
Here is my cake in all it’s glory – I love the Christmas tree background.
