Mini Flag Cakes

These cute little mini flag cakes are perfect for a 4th of July get together!

Ingredients

1
box Betty Crocker™ German chocolate cake mix
3
eggs
1/2
cup vegetable oil
1
cup water
1
oz. red food coloring

Whipped Cream

1
cup heavy whipping cream

Directions

  • 1 Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • 2 Pour all the contents of the cake mix in a bowl along with the eggs, water, and oil.
  • 3 Then pour in an entire 1 oz. bottle of red food coloring to get you that gorgeous deep red for the cake! Mix it well.
  • 4 Pour the batter into a greased 9x13 baking pan.
  • 5 Bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. You’ll want to cool your cake until it comes to room temperature.
  • 6 In the meantime, we can make the whipped cream! Pour about 1 cup of heavy whipping cream in the bowl of a stand mixer.
  • 7 Whip it up on high speed for about 3-5 minutes. Whip it until it’s fluffy and firm at the same time.
  • 8 Once your cake has cooled, flip it over onto a cutting board. Then take a serrated knife and slice the cake long ways every 1 to 1 1/2 inch or so.
  • 9 Then slice it the other way to get cubes!
  • 10 Now you’re ready to pipe the whipped cream. Take a spatula and a sandwich bag and put the whipped cream in the sandwich bag. Then cut the corner tip of the sandwich bag. Not too big of a hole!
  • 11 Then start piping the stripes on the cake squares!
  • 12 You should end up with flag stripes. Be sure to add a little bit extra whipped cream to where the stars will be.
  • 13 Then add the blueberries to where the stars will be and voila! Beautiful and cute mini flag cakes!

Mini Flag Cakes

As prepared by Table for Two Blog,

Fourth of July is this Wednesday and I know you have some fun plans with friends and family! Am I right?!


I look forward to the Fourth of July every year because there are a bunch of creative party dishes that I’m always dying to try. The colors red, white, and blue just go so well together and they’re so versatile in dishes! Finger foods are always popular when going to a friend’s house to cook-out or even if you’re having people over. Who doesn’t love miniaturized snacks? I know I’m all about them!

These cute little Mini Flag Cakes are something you should DEFINITELY think about bringing to a party or having at your party. They’re so easy to make and they take virtually no time to prep once the cake part of it is out of the oven and cooled.

Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees.

Here are the basic ingredients you’ll need to make the base of this cake (red velvet! Yum!):
