4th of July cake recipe!

Independence Day is here, a date marked on the calendar for enjoying the summer and a night of fireworks with our loved ones. The 4th of July cake is essential. Fresh and light, our three-color cake will bring a sweet and colorful homage to our flag to the table.

Aceite de oliva sabor suave /light flavor olive oil

 

Ingredients (12 pax)

  • 2 packets of white cake mix.
  • 2 tablespoon of light flavor olive oil.
  • 1 x 6 oz packet of cherry jello and another of blue raspberry jello to color the cake.
  • 2 cups of boiling water.
  • 5 cups of whipped cream or white icing.
  • Sweet blue and red food coloring for the cream, and toppings for decoration.

Preparation of 4th of July cake:

  1. Follow the instructions on the cake mix boxes and bake in two cake tins. Repeat to obtain the 4 layers of cake which will form our cake.
  2. While the cakes are baking, boil the water. Place the cherry jello in one bowl and the raspberry jello in another. When the water boils, add 1 cup to each bowl. Mix until the jello has dissolved.
  3. Take the cakes out of the oven. Prick two of them with a toothpick several times. Gently add 1/2 a cup of the liquid jello over each of these layers, one with the red mixture and another with the blue mixture. Add more jello to give more color to the cakes.
  4. Leave to cool for one hour.
  5. Begin to assemble the cake, beginning with a white base, on which we will spread one large tablespoon of cream. Then place the red cake, with a layer of cream; the blue cake with a layer of cream; and a final layer of white cake.
  6. Cover with the colored cream and decorate with toppings, with icing to imitate the flag of the USA.
  7. Leave to cool for at least one hour.
