Red, White & Blue Spangled Cake

                  This BEAUTY is perfect for any occasion! I used Red, White & Blue for The 4th of July & it fits right in with the Festivities! Change up the colors for ANY event & watch your guest ooh & ah over the decorative swirl inside!
      This cake is vanilla, strawberry, raspberry, & white chocolate flavored. SO different & easy to do !
THE CAKE BATTER:
2 Cups Flour
1 Cup Plain Yogurt
6 Egg Whites
1 TSP Vanilla
1 & 3/4 Cup Sugar
4 TSP Baking Powder
1 TSP Salt
1 & 1/2 Sticks Butter
Imitation Strawberry Favoring
Imitation Raspberry Flavoring
Red & Blue Dye

OR for easy decorating just dot the top alternating Blueberries & Strawberries, & or Red Raspberries!

Beat yogurt, egg whites & vanilla with a fork until egg whites are broken up & everything is combined. In a separate deep bowl add all the dry ingredients & whisk together. Beat in softened butter until you get fine crumbs. add 1/2 of the yogurt mixture & beat well. now add remaining yogurt mixture & beat until everything is blended well & smooth. Remove 2/3 cup for the red batter & 2/3 cup for the blue batter. Divide the remaining batter between 2 sprayed & floured 9 inch cake rounds. Into the batter to be red add 1 TSP of Imitation Strawberry Flavoring & enough red dye to make it a nice red color.  Into the blue batter add 1 TSP Raspberry Imitation Flavoring & enough blue dye to get a nice blue color. Divide the two colors between the two pans making sure the blobs do not touch each other. Take a knife & swirl each individual color through the white making sure the blue & red do NOT touch or you will get a funky purple color! 
                                                                                                                                     Bake in a 350 degree oven for 25 to 35 minutes CHECKING at the 25 minutes for it to be baked. Cake should SPRING BACK nicely when touched. Mine took a good 36 minutes but I do have a slow oven. Once baked remove from oven & let cool 10 minutes & then invert pans & dump out cake onto wax or parchment paper. Let cool & frost with the following White Chocolate Vanilla, Raspberry & Strawberry Frosting.
FROSTING:
2 Nestles White Chocolate Baking bars
1/2 Stick of Softened Butter
1 Cup Shortening
2 LB Confectioners Sugar
3 Dashes of Salt
About 5 TBS Milk ( give or take)
2 TSP Vanilla
Imitation Strawberry Flavoring
Imitation Raspberry Favoring
Red & Blue Dye

MELT 1 of the White Chocolate Bars in the microwave at 40% power for 40 seconds, stir & do that again. It should now be melted. Into the melted chocolate add the butter & beat together. Add 2 TBS milk & beat ( it will be watery). Now add about 2 cups of the sugar & the salt & beat again. Add shortening & beat. Add the remaining sugar a cup or 2 at a time using more milk if needed but keep the frosting stiff. Continue until you incorporate all of the sugar. Remove about 2/3 cup of frosting EACH for the red & the blue. In one bowl add the red with the strawberry flavoring about 4 drops of the flavoring & enough of the red to get the color you desire.  In the bowl for the blue do the same with the raspberry flavoring & the blue dye. Frost the cake with the white frosting. Use the red frosting to make red stars & the blue to make blue dots. Leave an empty circle of white frosting in the center of the top of the cake , using the other White Chocolate Bar use your potato peeler & run it down the sides of the bar to get chocolate curls. Pile them in the center of the cake.
IF YOU WANT FAST & EASY JUST USE A WHITE BOX CAKE ( I did NOT tell you that ssshhh) Add the colors & flavors like I described above. USING CANNED FROSTING use the colors & flavors as I described but remember SHHHH it is  a secret. THE ABOVE CAKE & FROSTING IS MY OWN RECIPE & MADE FROM SCRATCH USING THE ABOVE INGREDIENTS & TECHNIQUES! But FAST & EASY IS NICE SOMETIMES TOO! Now for very fast instead of frosting stars just dot the top & sides with alternated Blueberries & Strawberries, & or Red Raspberries!
