You can also try Patriotic M&M’s if you prefer those and it should turn out the same.

Sixlets Flag Cake

Chocolate Cake Mix
White Frosting
Red, White, & Blue Sixlets Candies
White Pearl Candies


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!

Such a fun & super easy patriotic cake to make & we are sure this will be a big hit at your July 4th gathering!:)
