NIGERIAN FLAG CAKE WITH POPCORN FROSTING [VIDEO]





Tie-dye cake
Today marks Nigeria's 56th Independence Day and I thought it would be fun to create this flag-themed cake with green-white-green layers on the inside and a green-white-green popcorn frosting. I've used the popcorn technique before on this tie-dye cake I made a while back...Not only does it cover a multitude of frosting sins, but it instantly creates an eye-catching texture with very little effort.

As I only have two large rectangular cake tins at home, I made four times the basic sponge cake mixture and trimmed them into four equal rectangles, leaving me with one extra layer of sponge. I would recommend using square tins if possible so that you only need to triple the sponge mixture.

To make this cake, you'll need:
