Patriotic Pinwheel Cake… A No Bake Cake!

 Can you guess how this adorable patriotic pinwheel cake is a no bake cake?

 Someone baked it… just not me! I know… super cheesy, but I am here to show you again, that desserts can be creative and easy!  This project is a fabulous combination of the 4th of July cake pops that we shared on Tuesday mixed with the ease of our pom pom cake toppers.

Last year post-fourth of July, we picked up these adorable patriotic pinwheels knowing something could be made with them!  I love the designs and the classic colors that were used and who wouldn’t love mini pinwheels?!

 Now, you know that I am no expert baker, so anytime I can buy a cake and place something pretty on it and call it a day, I am all in!  So here, I simply put three of the pinwheels in the top of the cake.  I made sure that they were differing heights.  Then, I took the sticks off of the other three and just pushed them into the side of the cake.  That is it… not too shabby for $1, huh?  If you are looking to save a few dollars on your holiday party, you should also check out the girls from At the Picket Fence’s post on Fourth of July decor on a budget.  Some really cute ideas for next to nothing!

Have a great weekend, y’all!
