DIY 4th of July layered cake:: Patriotic Cake:: DIY Independence Day Cake:: American Flag Cake What you need to bake: Red Velvet Cake- 1 (8 inch) and 1 (6 inch) tier White Cake- 1 (8 inch) tier Blue Velvet Cake- 1 (8 inch) tier. 1. You will torte (basically cut in half lengthwise) all of these cakes EXCEPT THE VELVET BLUE CAKE, so 3 tiers total. For detailed instructions on how to torte and level cakes, see Crumb Coat/Fondant Video Tutorial Part 1. 2. You will need to cut out a 4 inch circle as a guide, place it on one of the 6 inch red velvet cake layers, and cut the cake down to a 4 inch circle. You will follow this step for 1 of the white cake layers. 3. You will follow step #2 for the velvet blue cake tier (remember that we did not torte this tier) except instead of pulling away the outer ring, you will pull out the middle circle so it is a hollow ring. 4. At this point you should have: 2 (8 inch) and 1 (4 inch) red velvet cake layers, 1 (8 inch) and 1 (4 inch) white cake layer, and 1 hollow (8 inch) blue velvet cake layer that is twice the thickness of the other layers. 5. Place an 8 inch red velvet layer on your plate. Frost the top of the layer, place an 8 inch white cake layer on top, frost that, place a red velvet layer on top of that and frost the top. 6. Place the Blue cake layer on top of the cake. Then frost the 4 inch white cake layer and lower it into the middle of the blue velvet layer. 7. Lower the 4 inch red velvet layer onto the top of the white layer in the blue velvet circle. 8. Crumb coat the cake. Here’s a video on how to do that! Crumb Coat Video Extra tips: chilling the layers will help prevent messy crumbs and hold the whole thing together better. You might also want to coat the inside of the hollowed out blue velvet circle layer to better hold the inner stripe layers to the outer blue cake after its cut. Cutting the Cake: 1. CHILL THE CAKE! As long as you put a good coating of buttercream/frosting on it the cake should not dry out. 2. Use hot water and a hot clean knife. Between slices, clean the knife and slip it down into very hot water. 3. Make sure the knife is completely dry after dipping it in the hot water. Thanks so much to Kathryn of The Sugar Turntable blog for giving us permission to use her photos and instructions for this cake. All photos in the collage and instructions are from her blog.

DIY Disinfecting Wipes & More with Step by Step Instructions.
Disinfectant Wipes, Essential Oil, Paper Towels Rolls, Diy Cleaning, Measuring Cups, Nature Cleaners, Cleaning Wipes, Cleaning Recipe, Paper Towel Roll
Making your own Disinfectant Wipes - Pine Sol or Vinegar (Recipes are at the bottom of this post for various types of cleaners you can create) Sturdy paper towels Water Glad or Ziplock Container that is large enough to fit part of a paper towel roll in Serrated Knife Something to cut a 1/2″ hole through plastic (I used a 1/2 inch drill bit- that worked well) Measuring cups Bowl GOTTA DO IT!! // Must try this with natural cleaner.
DIY Disinfecting Wipes & More with Step by Step Instructions. Supplies Needed: Pine Sol or Vinegar (Recipes are at the bottom of this post for various types of cleaners you can create) Sturdy paper towels (I choose Bounty) Water Glad or Ziplock Container that is large enough to fit part of a paper towel roll in ( I found the Glad Designer Bowl at Target–Two for $2.99) Serrated Knife Something to cut a 1/2″ hole through plastic (I used a 1/2 inch drill bit- that worked well) Measuring cups Bowl . Cut your paper towel role length wise so it will fit nicely in the plastic container you’ve selected. I used a large serrated knife and it cut through the paper towels just fine! 2. Next you will need to cut a hole in the top of the plastic lid so you can easily pull the paper towels or should I say, disinfecting wipes, out. I asked my husband for a 1/2″ drill bit and used that. But because the plastic you are cutting through is so thin, I think a knife or even sharp scissors will work just as well. Just be careful and use a cutting board. 3. Mix your desired solution. Here are several recipes you can use: Disinfectant Cleaning Recipe (this is the one I used): 1/4 – 1/2 cup of pine cleaning solution such as Pine Sol 2 1/2 – 2 3/4 cup of water General Cleaning Surface Recipe: 1 1/2 cups white vinegar 1 1/2 cups water Optional: A few drops of favorite scented essential oil to cut the vinegar smell Window Glass Cleaning Recipe: 1/2 cup of rubbing (isopropyl) alcohol 2 1/2 cups water 1 tablespoon white vinegar (source) 4. Once you have your solution mixed and your paper towel roll set in the plastic container, pour the solution over the paper towels. Put the lid back on the plastic container and allow them to sit overnight. 5. Once the towels have sat overnight, then the cardboard tube in the center of the paper towel roll should easily come out (See the bottom right photo above). 6. Carefully pull the end of the paper towels from the inside, where the cardboard roll had been. Thread the end of the towels through the hole in the lid, and replace the lid. TA DA! You know have your own household cleaning wipes. As I mentioned early, I was skeptical of this project and didn’t know if was worth the time it took to cut and drill but it really is simple to do and you can reuse the container over and over again

Hydrogen peroxide to disinfect humidifier
How To Clean Your Humidifier | One Good Thing by Jillee
DISINFECT clean humidifier, then disinfect it by filling the water tank with clean water and + 1 tspn of bleach to 1 gallon of water. Or, you can use 3% hydrogen peroxide instead. Gently swish the solution to coat the tank evenly, allow to sit 30 min. Rinse THOROUGHLY. FYI…indoor humidity levels should ideally be between 30 and 50 percent. Most homes heated to 73 degrees can have a relative humidity of just 15%! In comparison, the typical humidity in the Sahara Desert is 25%!
