how not to decorate a 4th of july cake
Here's my very own 4th of July cake wreck...looks like it got hit by a roman candle. It started out so promising -- but then I actually tasted the red frosting. I should have known it would be awful considering I used an entire jar of "Christmas Red" paste coloring for 1 cup of frosting. There is about 1/4 of red frosting on this cake right now. I had made a shell-edge around the top and had planned on shell-edging the bottom as well. Glad I only had completed the top edge. I scraped off as much as I could, but couldn't get it all, so I just "swirled" it into the good-tasting white frosting.
