Mom’s Festive American Flag Cake Is a Guaranteed Memorial Day Hit

Like many people, you’re probably gearing up for the Memorial Day weekend. Your preparations might include cleaning your home or yard for incoming visitors. Then, you’ll be locating your swimsuits and towels for a trip to the beach, lake, or waterpark. Next, clean off the grill, so those burgers, hot dogs, and kabobs taste terrific. All of these chores are the norm for a summer holiday. But if you plan to cook out this weekend, don’t forget to prepare a dessert.

Often, we get caught up in the main dishes we serve that something sugary may get overlooked. Well, no need to worry. TikTok content creator @athomewithshannon has got you covered. Her patriotic-looking cake offers a sweet treat with a decorative flair. No Memorial Day cookout is complete without this cake!

Mmm, that cake looks scrumptious! We’re looking forward to using this recipe as soon as possible. It sounds like TikTok viewers are ready to bake, too. User @Mari Darlin said, “I love all of your ideas. Fellow mom.” @eva! revealed, “We’ve been doing this since I can remember! I am for sure passing this tradition down to my kids!” @Shumi Brody replied, “This is so helpful, Shannon! I want to make it!” @Megan Sedler disclosed, “I may be the only one, but all I can think of is the Rugrats episode where Didi makes this. I always thought it looked good, though.”

We’d forgotten about the Rugrats episode, but thanks for the reminder, @Megan Sedler. We’re happy to hear it triggered happy memories for someone. If you’re ready to make new memories give this recipe a try. We know it’s a winner.
