The Red White and Blue Cake recipe is so pretty with three layers and fluffy cheesecake frosting. It will be a hit for the Fourth of July and Memorial Day!
My Easter Cake recipe is wildly popular with my readers, so I decided to share a Red, White, and Blue Cake for the Fourth of July, as well as Memorial Day and Labor Day. Layered cakes look stunning and I love that they are easy to make. The light, fluffy, cheesecake frosting is the perfect match for the layers of cake and the crumbled cake on top is a fun decoration.
Mix two white cake mixes, vanilla yogurt, water, egg whites and oil for about 30 seconds, with a stand mixer, until moistened and then beat for 2 minutes. Divide the batter between three bowls, about three cups each. Tint the batter in one bowl blue, another bowl red and leave the final bowl white. I recommend using Wilton Icing Gel for the vibrant colors you get with less food coloring.
Spread the batter into three greased, floured and parchment lined 9-inch pans and firmly tap the pans on the counter a couple of times. Bake at 325 degrees for 35-45 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow the cakes to cool for 30 minutes on a wire rack. Carefully remove the cakes from the pans and peel off the parchment circles. Cool the cakes completely on a wire rack.
Once the cakes the cooled, prepare the frosting and level the cakes by using a long serrated knife to cut off the rounded tops. Set the cake tops aside for later. Place the red cake on a cardboard cake round on a rotating cake stand or place it directly on your cake stand like I did. Spread about one and a half cups of the frosting on the first layer and repeat with the two remaining layers.
Use the remaining frosting to cover the top and sides of the cake. Use the tip of an offset spatula to make stripes up the sides of the cake.
Makes lines on the top of the cake too. Don’t worry about them being perfect because most of the top will be covered.
Crumble the remaining red and blue cake tops and sprinkle some of the crumbles on the top of the cake.
The Red White and Blue Cake turned out so pretty with the three layers and the fluffy cheesecake frosting is so cool and creamy. It’s sure to be a hit at your summer parties!
