Easy Firecracker Cake

Our youngest firecracker made this cake for us for dessert on this wonderful 4th of July. It was so moist and delicious. I wish I could have bragging rights for a “from scratch” recipe but this was an easy box cake that she wanted to do. She ran the this show and made the entire cake. I think it is so important to step back once in awhile in the kitchen. It might get messy but the confidence they get living and learning is so worth it.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

What you need:

White/Vanilla Cake Mix

Any cake recipe or box method you like. We chose vanilla for the white cake factor of this project.

Grease a 13 x 9 pan.  Pour batter into pan.

Red and Blue food coloring –

She made random drops on the batter. Next she ran a knife through the batter like a connect the dots game. As she swirled throughout the creamy batter the fireworks image emerged nicely.

Whipped Vanilla frosting  and festive sprinkles of your choice.

Don’t forget to lick the spatula after you are done frosting!!!
