Instructions for Creating a Large American Flag Cake

Items Needed:

  • 18” Square Cake Pan
  • Martha Stewart Star Craft Punch
  • 3 Boxes White Cake Frosting
  • 3 Containers of White Frosting
  • White Fondant
  • Red Fondant
  • Blue Fondant
  • Extra-Large Cake Tray

Step 1: Roll out the red fondant and use a large piece of it to cover the extra-large cake tray.

Step 2: Prepare the 18” square cake pan for the batter and baking process.

Step 3: Create the cake batter using the 3 boxes of white cake mix. Once created, pour into the cake pan, bake, and allow to cool.

Step 4: Roll out a large section of white fondant and use the Martha Stewart star punch and create 50 white stars for the flag.

Step 5: Place the cake on the cake tray and frost the entire cake using the white icing.

Step 6: Roll out a large piece of white fondant and cover the entire cake.

Step 7: Roll out the blue fondant and cut out a blue square to place on the cake, like the blue that is on the flag. Then, lay the 50 stars on the flag in the same way that they are laid out on the American flag.

Step 8: Next, roll out the red fondant and cut out stripes that will look like the red stripes on the flag. You should measure these out so that they are even with the white fondant stripes that will be created by the white fondant that is already present on the cake. There should be 7 red stripes and 6 white stripes on the cake with the top and bottom stripe being red.

Now that you know how important it is to take your time in creating a flag cake and understand all that an American flag cake represents, it is time to try to create this type of cake all on your own. Remember, you are creating more than a decorated cake; you are creating a reflection of the most honored and respected symbol in the United States. For this reason, it is important that you take a lot of pictures of your creation as you are making it and immediately after it is made.
