Here in Italy nobody gives an effin' damn about cooking red,white and green cakes,if not maybe in case of a huge national team soccer match(world championship final for instance).
In the mosaic above,you can see pictures from:
1) The secret life of a chef's wife (top left) : pretty classical but with the banana/custard cake must really be a delicious combo <3
2) Betty Crocker site (bottom left) : each slice becomes a cute flag in your plate!So cute.
3) Jacks & Cake (top right) : ain't this a great twist?Patriotic,but steering away from the usual red,white and blue.Great!
4) City of moms (bottom right) : i'm not a big fan of jello,but that's such a pretty vision i might eat these anyways ;)
Click on the names of the sites to get the yummy recipes ;)
I keep hopin' that maybe,in 10 years time,i'll be living overseas and bake one of these myself...celebrating my new homeland!Who can tell?A girl can dream!
