July 4th - Independence Day Cake
Made this cake for the 4th of July celebration at my friend's house. It's been years since the old gang from high school got together so it was a very special occasion. I really enjoyed getting together with everyone and where there is a celebration... there must be cake!!!
I used Swiss Meringue Buttercream for this cake. It's so light and fluffy. The cake is a sinfully delicious chocolate cake with 2 cups of mini chocolate chips in the mix. Chocolate covered strawberries surround the cake. The blue glitter turned everyone's teeth blue while they were eating. Thankfully the color was very short lived and we all returned to a healthy pink within minutes of finishing.
