Fabulous 4th of July cake recipes!

For the Fourth of July, everyone knows and loves the classic strawberry and blueberry flag cake, but maybe this year it’s time to try something new! Here are six beautiful (and totally doable!) recipes and decorating ideas for patriotic, red-white-and-blue cakes:

1. Red, white and blue layered flag cake

2. Red, white, and blue berry trifle via Martha Stewart – a beautiful layered dessert made from ladyfingers, homemade whipped cream, and berries. Ok, so it’s not exactly a cake, but it’s in the shape of one… and it’s too gorgeous not to include here!

3. Patriotic rose cake via i am baker – this is a cake decorating and frosting tutorial, so you’d need to start with pre-made cake layers (see recipes from cakes #1, 5 or 6).

4. Firecracker bundt cake – for a quick and easy cake, this one starts with boxed cake mix. The multicolored frosting and sprinkles make this one great!

5. Fantastic fireworks cake – another creative way to dress up a boxed cake mix, and a perfect pairing with the Martha Stewart fireworks cookies that are such a huge hit.

6. Red, white, and blue layer cake
