Festive and Delicious Red ’n’ Blue Velvet Cake Stacks Recipe Is Something to Celebrate

Marshmallow fluff in the frosting adds even more deliciousness to this fun treat.

Whether you’re ringing in the Fourth of July or want to add a patriotic touch to any party, these treats are the perfect delight. To create this decadent dessert, we topped red, white and blue cake layers with light-as-air marshmallow fluff frosting, and then adorned them with star fruit for the finishing touch. Vibrant, sweet, and delicious, red ‘n’ blue velvet cake stacks are perfect for any get-together. We can pretty much guarantee they’ll be the hit of your cookout!

Baking tip: The key to a tender cake is to sift the flour. Too prevent it from ending up all over your counter, try this First for Women test kitchen hack. Simply place flour in a large bowl and whisk for 20 seconds. The tool separates and aerates flour particles in a contained space, so baked goods come out fluffy with minimal cleanup. Do you have your own genius baking hacks?
