Sparkling Firecracker Cake for Memorial Day

May 27, 2016

This red, white and blue firecracker cake is a Memorial Day dessert that even the most novice baker can prepare.  The recipe calls for boxed caked mix so all you have to do is gather the ingredients required on the box, food coloring, and vanilla frosting.  I love to dust my cake with some sanding sugar to add a bit of sparkle.  What are your favorite red, white and blue dessert to prepare for Memorial Day? Please share your recipe on so others can enjoy your signature dishes.
