Monday, Chris and I had a flag cake competition. It went something like this.
After mixing, baking, pouring, and cooling for three hours, we each assembled our preferred decorating ingredients.
Each competitor was given exactly 6 minutes to put something together to present to the judges. Of which there were two. Me and Chris.
Luckily there were two categories you could enter. Red & Blue Berry or Blue & Red Sprinkles. Above is the berry winner, below is the sprinkle winner.
Chris also got a gold star for how straight his sprinkle lines were. I would have worked harder on straight lines myself but really just wanted to get the judging over with. So I could taste it.
Listen, you pour strawberry jello over white cake and throw some whipped cream on top and you can't go wrong. Simple summer fun at it's finest. Recipe for flag cake is here. Any white cake mix will do, and we kept it simple with whipped cream in the can for the topping and no pudding.
