This three-layer Red, White, and Blue Cake is perfect for celebrating all things patriotic! Switch up the colors and this delicious vanilla cake recipe can be used for any special event!
If you would prefer to fully icing the sides of the cake, use these measurements for the vanilla buttercream (follow the same instructions as in the recipe):
8 Cups powdered sugar
1 Cup butter
1/4 Cup milk
1 Tablespoon + 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- use reusable Silpat Round Cake Pan Mats instead of cutting parchment paper to help prevent your cake from sticking. You will still need to grease and flour the sides of the pan.
- make sure your butter is at room temperature and soft before making the cake batter
- refrigerating the cakes before applying icing will help keep crumbs to a minimum
- a chilled cake will result in a cleaner cut and the icing between the layers will keep it’s shape better, so if possible, keep your cake in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve it.
