Every year when I bake and decorate this American flag cake for the 4th of July- I am reminded of what a delicious cake this is! My absolute favorite parts are the fresh raspberries combined with the cream cheese frosting. And the sour cream-based yellow cake is just so yummy!
I had originally found this recipe when it was published in the Martha Stewart Living magazine several years ago. You can find this recipe all over the internet if you just google “Barefoot Contessa Flag Cake.”
Created by Ina Garten, known as the Barefoot Contessa and featured in her 2002 book, Barefoot Contessa Family Style, I had planned to link to the recipe on her website, but alas, it was not there.
So I found it on the Food Network website, and I wanted to share it with you!
Every day is a reason to celebrate our country's flag, don't you think?
