We came up with this fun Flag Cake using Sixlets candies & this is SO easy to make! The kids can decorate this cake all by themselves & this is a great cake to take to a July 4th party. My boys also said that this was the best cake they had ever had…I am pretty sure that had something to do with using one of I am Baker’s cake recipes…and maybe a little to do with the cake covered in Sixlets!:)
Sixlets Flag Cake
Start out by baking a 9×13 cake. Spread a thin layer of white frosting onto the completely cooled cake.
Then you will add about 10 rows of blue Sixlets in the top left corner. Then rotate the red & white Sixlets using 2 in each row. You will not get 13..but who is really going to count them? Well..unless you are my husband who noticed that party right away.:) Here is a side view…
We added smaller Pearl White Candies to look like stars….
My 3 year old helped me make this cake & we had a blast!
You can get individual colored bags of Sixlets & Pearl candies at any craft stores…including Walmarts & Target. Such a fun & super easy patriotic cake to make & we are sure this will be a big hit at your July 4th gathering!:)
