Have you ever made one of these? We certainly have. These sheet cakes iced with white frosting and topped with strawberry (or raspberry) stripes and blueberry stars are all the rage on the 4th of July. But are they sweet? Or too cutesy? Click below for a new twist on the flag cake from (who else?) Martha Stewart. Martha has a recipe for a classic flag sheet cake, iced with cream cheese frosting. But there's also a new recipe on her website, for Fruited-Cheesecake Flag. It's individual squares, strategically decorated to make a flag when displayed together.
Happy 4th of July, everyone! (Image: Flickr members Chris and Jenni, licensed under Creative Commons; Martha Stewart)
