Coolest 4th of July Birthday Bash Cake

I made this cake for a friend’s 4th of July  birthday bash.  She loved it!  It was the first time I tried adding coloring to the cake mix before baking.  I colored some of the tiers red, white then blue.  If I could do it again, I would have stacked to differently.

In the bottom cake are two tiers of red with two tiers of white.  I have never covered a cake in fondant that was so tall!  For the top tier I made three layers blue. If I have the chance to do it again I would have just made one layer of each color for each tier.  She only sent me pictures of the top tier being cut but I would like to see what the lower tier looked like when it was cut!  I think the cake looked better in person.

I love all the little dots on the cake but cutting out 2 of each color was very time consuming and I am not sure if it was worth the effort.  She loved the cake and end the end that is what really matters.
