Arizona Flag Cake: Show Your State Spirit
The Arizona Cardinals headed to the Super Bowl, and unless you're prepared to brave rowdy crowds at a hellishly over-packed sports bar, you're probably going to be headed to someone's house to watch the game. If you're looking for something fun to bring, try making a fruit-topped Arizona flag cake like this one my friend Ashley made for my NFC Championship party.
It's a simple white cake from a box (Ashley regrets this) topped with white icing and stripes of blueberries, strawberries and banana, with a starfruit in the middle. The starfruit is pricey ($5) and isn't availible at every grocery store but the other ingredients were cheap and easy to come by. Make sure you put the banana on last, as it'll turn brown in an hour or so.
