4th of July Flag Cake

This past weekend, my husband and I went to the lake and we had so much fun with my mom, grandma and my adorable little niece. We were celebrating the 4th together and I decided to make a flag cake I saw in a magazine. It was so good! I did tweak the frosting a bit because it tasted like powdered sugar, it felt griddy and not what I thought it should taste like. Here is the link to the actual recipe (from Family Circle) and this is what I added to the frosting:
4 oz. cream cheese
add 1 more tablespoon of milk
add 2 more tablespoons of lemon juice
add 1 tablespoon of lemon zest

The rest of the recipe was fine but this really made a difference to the frosting! Enjoy my pictures!
