Dress up a Sheet Cake: Stars and Stripes Patriotic Cake

This time for the fourth of July I decided to make a simple sheet cake.

We start out with a white frosted sheet cake. You can frost it yourself, leave it in the pan and only frost the top, or you can buy it frosted.
 Then I put some buttercream in two separate bowls and added blue gel food coloring to one and red to the other.
 And I mixed them through.
 And I'm using three medium star tips.
 I put some red, white and blue buttercream in piping bags with the star tips.
 I started with red and piped some simple stars onto the sides of the cake to create stripes.
 All the way around the cake.
 I also got out three different sizes of star cutters.
 I pressed them onto the top of the cake.
 Then I filled them in with some simple stars piped to fill in the stars with blue buttercream.
 I filled in all of the stars with blue.
 Finally, I piped a shell border along the edge of the cake with white buttercream.
 I think this cake is perfect for the Fourth of July.
 What could be more patriotic than stars and stripes?
 Happy Independence Day.
