American Flag Vanilla Cake Recipe Ingredients:
-3 cups sifted flour
-3 tsp. baking powder
-1/2 tsp. salt
-1 cup unsalted butter
-2 cups sugar
-4 large eggs
-1 tsp. vanilla extract
-1 cup whole milk
-Blue and red sprinkles (if you can find star-shaped sprinkles, even better!)
-Fatty Sundays custom colored red, white and blue sprinkle pretzels
American Flag Vanilla Cake Recipe Directions:
-Heat the oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly coat 2 rectangular cake pans with butter and sprinkle with all-purpose flour. Sift the cake flour, baking powder, and salt into a large mixing bowl.
-Beat in the butter one heaping 1/4 teaspoonful at a time, using an electric mixer set on low speed. Beat in the sugar a tablespoon at a time. Beat in the eggs one at a time. Add the vanilla and milk, and beat on medium-high, until blended.
-Pour half the mixture into one prepared pan, and the remaining mixture in the other pan. Bake both until a toothpick inserted in the center of each comes out clean—30 to 35 minutes. Cool cakes in the pan on a wire rack.
-Un-mold and cool completely. Place 1 cake on a platter. Ice with vanilla frosting and top with blue and red sprinkles. Place the other cake on top, and ice with remaining vanilla frosting to cover the top and sides. Decorate cake with Fatty Sundays custom red, white and blue sprinkles to replicate the American flag. You will need to chop the blue sprinkle pretzels into bite-size pieces for this, but you can leave the red and white sprinkle pretzels as full size rods.
Add on the finishing touches with small American flag toothpicks and red cake candles to top. You can’t get more festive than with this cake! The best way to decorate a cake is with Fatty Sundays custom colored sprinkle pretzels. They will give your cake that extra pizzazz you were looking for.
