If you're like most Americans, you're at home right now, about to whip up a Fourth of July flag cake. And the Barefoot Contessa wanted to get in on the fun, too, with her very own famous confection.
“It’s a 4th of July tradition!” Ina Garten posted on Instagram yesterday. “I’ve made so many flag cakes over the years and I’ve gotten really fast at decorating them!!” So she's got jokes and pristine baking skills.
We already knew that Garten was utter perfection, but after watching this zippy time-lapse video, we're absolutely convinced. The precision with which she places the blueberries and raspberries on the sheet cake is mesmerizing. And she definitely knows her way around an icing bag. Something tells us that even if the video weren't time-lapsed, she'd have that cake looking patriotic in no time.
Fingers crossed our Swineapple appetizer turns out remotely as pretty.
