Baking Date: July 3, 2014
My family was having a get together on July 4, and I was asked to bring desserts. I wanted something patriotic, and this picture had popped up in my Facebook feed a few days earlier.
I’ve “liked” The Barefoot Contessa on Facebook, so I see her amazing creations all the time. I figured I could make this, as the recipe looked fairly straightforward.
I prepared the berries.
I made and baked the cake (it took closer to 30 minutes to bake fully). I made the frosting the night before and found that it was not easy to pipe on after being in the fridge. In the future, I would make the cake earlier in the day, let it cool, then make the frosting and put it on right away.
So, here’s how mine turned out:
Here’s hoping you had an amazing Fourth of July with people who are special to you.
