Yep, you read that right. Brian has a birthday coming up, so Jen has decided to tackle this cake:
Jen has been scouring the internet for delicious cake recipes, so here are all her secrets!
1. Red Velvet Cake – The Alton Brown recipe has been met with great success already. The plan is to use the red velvet cake for the red layers, and the same recipe for the blue layer, but with blue food coloring.
2. White Cake – She’ll be trying this recipe for the white layers.
3. Even though the picture clearly shows fondant icing, it’s not as delicious as this cream cheese frosting recipe also generously provided by Alton Brown. The plan is to paint stars and stripes on the top with food coloring.
Today’s plan – pick up essentials from the grocery store!

So Jen attempted to make the Captain America cake. It didn’t quite turn out like the “inspiration”, so instead it transformed into an Avengers cake. It looked good and tasted delicious. There are already requests for more cakes!
