Fourth of July surprise cake

"Live free and dye" - to take some liberties with New Hampshire's motto. The creator of this new take on the Independence Day cake lives in neighboring Vermont.

The usual sheet cake with berries probably tastes better, but this one beats it for shock and awe.

    1. Can't help being tempted to make it as we'll be celebrating the 4th with children. They'd get a bang out of it, I think! Will let you know if I do it. Thanks for the fun post.

        1. I love the kitsch factor of this cake, and will totally make it for my children some day. Off the hook for this year though! Phew!

          1. 9 sticks of butter? Wow. Does look neat, though.
