Red, White, and Blue Mini Cakes
These Red, White, and Blue Mini Cakes are perfect for all your summer parties and BBQs!
vanilla cake mix
(plus ingredients to prepare mix: eggs, oil, etc.)
red and blue food coloring
vanilla or white frosting
red, white, and blue sprinkles
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Spray 3 9-inch cake pans with nonstick spray, then coat lightly with flour.
Prepare cake mix according to package directions. (Tip: for a white cake, use egg whites, not whole eggs.)
Measure batter, then divided evenly into three bowls.
Color batter in one bowl red, and another bowl blue, using food coloring.
Transfer batter to prepared cake pans. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 10 to 12 minutes.
Let cake cool slightly, then remove cake from pans and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely before frosting.
Use a 2.5-inch circle cutter to cut each layer into 7 circles. (Tip: If your cake layers have a dome after baking, slice off the tops with a serrated knife before cutting out the circles.)
Cover a blue cake circle generously with frosting, then top with a white circle, and add more frosting. Finish with a red colored layer, topping with more frosting.
Use the flat side of a knife to remove excess frosting from the sides of the cake.
Repeat process with remaining cake, then top cakes with red, white, and blue sprinkles.
Serve cakes immediately or store in a cool place. Enjoy!
