Coconut Fourth of July Flag Cake

This coconut Fourth of July flag cake is so easy to put together, and looks adorable.

What you need … 

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.
