I’m not going to lie to you. This flag-inspired layer cakelooks like a beast to make. Not easy, not fast, not lazy kitchen friendly. It looks like a intense adventure, lined with F-bombs and serious blasphemy.
But it looks so cool.
I have no evidence to support my theory that I can pull this off. My success with layer cakes has been spotty at best. I’m heading into this project armed with nothing but a misguided determination to try anyway.
Part of the problem here is that I’ve seen 100 similar ideas running through my inbox for weeks. There’s a limit to how many times I can look at something like this before I get sucked in.
I don’t even know if I have time to make this. But I will.
It’s bound to look a little more like the flag is, say, waving, than standing at perfect right angles.
But I’m going to try.
Then again, it’s possible that this is the coffee talking. We’ll see how I feel about it later.
