Red, White, and Blue Marble Sheet Cake

Red, White, and Blue Marble Sheet Cake

This Red, White, and Blue Marble Sheet Cake is made with an adapted cake box mix and topped with a whipped white chocolate frosting. It’s the perfect patriotic dessert for the 4th of July!

I’m slightly in shock that the 4th of July is less than two weeks away. Even though summer just technically began a few days ago, I always kind of feel like the 4th is the mid-point of it, anyone else? And once it’s come and gone it’s like a rush to fall and back to school season. But I am loving summer this year, probably because I get to see a lot more of it now that I’m self-employed, but I’m really not ready to see it slip away. So here’s to making the most of every warm, sunny moment!

The 4th is always a great time for memories. For me, it means catching up with some of my high school besties on the lake and BBQ and lawn games with family. It means fruit pies topped with ice cream and hard ciders all around. It means taking the day off and celebrating having the freedom to do so.

But it wouldn’t be a proper birthday party without cake, so you should make sure to serve up this Red, White, and Blue Marble Sheet Cake too! This cake is made from an adapted box mix, with the addition of a few extra ingredients we get a dense, moist cake that bakes up flat. Some of the batter gets separated and dyed red and blue to create the patriotic marble effect. This simple cake is then frosted with a white chocolate whipped cream frosting and loaded up with red, white, and blue sprinkles! Don’t worry about the candles, instead light some sparklers and celebrate our nation’s big day with those you love!
