Show your colors on July 4 with kitchen artistry

What could make a Fourth of July gathering more patriotic or more enjoyable than a fantastic flag cake? It’s easy to create, and it can be the conversation piece of the table besides being a palate-pleaser to all. There are two secrets that make this cake taste extra good: instant potato flakes keep the cake tender and moist, while mini chocolate chips give you little bursts of chocolate with every bite. The colorful fruit on top not only adds great flavor, it also turns your cake into a showstopper.
