If you're hosting a 4th of July BBQ this weekend, and you're looking for an impressive dessert to serve to your guests, look no further.
We wanted to take the colorful layer cake trend patriotic with nine, (yes, NINE!) layers to celebrate our country.
To make our Ombre Independence Day Cake, you'll need three boxes of white cake mix to make all nine layers.
Tip: If you want to try for a slightly shorter cake, use two cake mixes to make five layers (two blue, one white, and two red) instead.
However you decide to do it, take your time assembling the layers, and don't skimp on the chilling time. It will keep your cake from slipping and sliding later.
Once it's frosted, we sprinkled the top with red Pop Rocks to give the cake some fireworks flare.
