There’s no better time to dine on the finest barbecue, sides and cakes that summer has to offer. If you’re anything like us, you’re rounding up the most patriotic desserts ahead of time, from trifles to Jell-Os that are red, white and blue. Thanks to Ina Garten, you can take a sweet page right out of her new cookbook.
Ina Garten, aka the Barefoot Contessa, just shared the recipe for her famous flag cake. It’s the perfect weekend baking project.
We Love This Patriotic Flag Cake!
Ina Garten is always rolling out new recipes on Instagram, and we couldn’t be more grateful. Ina showcased the prettiest cake in her collection, a flag cake topped with blueberries, raspberries and cream cheese frosting. Naturally, dessert fans and Ina Garten fans alike fell in love.
She initially whipped up the recipe in honor of Memorial Day, but we’re craving it any time of the year. According to the comments, Ina suggests fresh berries for this recipe, since frozen berries tend to thaw and release water. Need more help in the kitchen? Check out Ina Garten’s best cooking tips.
