Red, White and Blue Popcorn Cake

Red, White and Blue Popcorn Cake

Whether it's the fourth of July, Memorial Day, Veterans Day, Labor Day or any other time you want to serve a dessert with some patriotic flair, we've got you covered. Our red, white and blue popcorn cake recipe features layers of moist cake, sweet creamy frosting and crunchy popcorn all decked out in America's colors.

Sometimes we bake from scratch and sometimes we get a little help from the store. For this cake, the decor is the hit so we grabbed our favorite box cake mix and a few containers of creamy frosting. We do recommend you pick up some gel food colors because red and blue are deep colors and using concentrated gels will get you to the shade you want without adding too much liquid.

For the popcorn we like our large mushroom kernels because it will be coated in a colored syrup and then baked on. The result is a sweet, crunchy popcorn topping for the cake. You don't have to make it colorful but it was too much fun to skip.

The outside of the cake is pretty with the colorful sprinkles and popcorn but the real showstopper is the sliced version when all the layers are revealed. We can practically guarantee the oohs and ahs. Do you need to add a sparkler? No. But also yes because we're extra like that.
