This coconut Fourth of July flag cake is so easy to put together, and looks adorable.
1 box of your favorite cake mix
1, 7 ounce bag of flaked coconut
1 container of your favorite vanilla icing
Red and blue food coloring
What I did ….
Bake the cake according to directions in a 9×13 pan.
Once the cake cools, frost it with icing.
Then, take a couple tablespoons of the coconut flakes and mix them with several drops of the blue food coloring. Spread the blue coconut flakes in the left corner.
Take a couple handfuls of the coconut flakes and do the same thing as you did with the blue, with the red. (I like to do the red in small batches)
Using a teaspoon, alternate spreading the non-colored coconut flakes with the red ones.
