I miss my recipes sometimes…I didn’t realize when I started this blog that it would launch me into a world of constantly new and changing recipes. If I’m asked to bring a dessert to something I rarely return to my favorites. Instead I create something new that I can share with all of you! This week I am revisiting some of my favorites in honor of the Fourth of July. I chose some of my most colorful and fun recipes to recreate in Red White and Blue. Each of these recipes can be tweaked to fit any color theme, but this week we are celebrating the USA with each recipe. Here we go…..!
The original Tie Dye cake recipe was created October 10, 2012 in honor of my nephew Marshal. It has gotten rave reviews for how easy it is to make. It’s been the star dessert at birthday parties, Easter celebrations and even a Luau! It was featured in the Huffington Post in an article celebrating all things tie dye.

Stay tuned…I will be back tomorrow with another revisited recipe!
Modifications to the original recipe:
Instead of rainbow colors, I used red and blue. USE COLOR GELS if you want bright and vibrant color. Liquid colors will not give you the deep colors you want. I actually ran out of red and ended up a little more pink than I wanted! I love my color gels– I use them a lot!
I used the buttercream from the original recipe but added vanilla instead of the raspberry flavoring, and I left it white with a few sprinkles.
