Bring a Taste of Home to our Troops and Support the USO

Here is a truly patriotic way to celebrate this summer! Taste of Home is pledging up to $100,000 for our troops, with 10¢ for every person who views their Flag cake through the Independence Day holiday.  Visit for a great recipe and your view will provide a full two minute free phone call from a current service member overseas to home.  Every $1 raised provides 20 minutes of talk time for service members. When you are able to hear the voice of a loved one for two minutes or twenty minutes, the value of those phone calls is impossible to measure.  To VIEW THE FLAG CAKE RECIPE GO>

A Taste of Home, the #1 food and entertaining brand in the world, has partnered with the USO to provide a simple way for Americans to say thanks to our military and their families by donating 10¢ for each unique visitor to their new Flag Cake recipe on the magazine’s website (www.tasteofhome.com/uso).

This patriotic promotion will kick off on Memorial Day and continue through the 4th of July holiday, allowing anyone with an online connection a simple and concrete way to say thanks. Taste of Home is pledging up to $100,000 for our troops, with 10¢ for every person who views their Flag cake through the Independence Day holiday.

If visitors want to make even more of a difference, they can pass on the Flag Cake recipe to friends and family for their viewing or donate directly to the USO at www.uso.org/donate.

The Flag Cake recipe is perfect for sharing with friends and family as we honor members of the military. Just one recipe view provides a full two minute free phone call from a current service member overseas to home. Every $1 raised provides 20 minutes of talk time for service members. When you are able to hear the voice of a loved one for two minutes or twenty minutes, the value of those phone calls is impossible to measure.

“We are so proud to be able to support our military and their families through the USO.” said Catherine Cassidy, VP and Editor-in-Chief of Taste of Home Magazine. “Our readers are some of the most giving community minded people you will ever meet. Many of them come from military families and understand first-hand the impact that saying thank you for your service can have. We wanted to honor the generosity of our service members and readers by providing funding to the USO.”

“The USO does all that we can to maintain and deepen the connection between troops and their families. Communication works wonders for the morale of the troops and for their families back home. There’s no such thing as too much communication between troops and their families. We think the partnership with Taste of Home is a great way to lift the spirits of our troops and provide America such an easy, fun, and delicious way to support the troops,” said Kelli Seely, SVP of Development, USO.

  1. What a beautiful cake. I love that idea. With my track record I should not even dare to attempt that because mine would look more like a volcano than a flag. Maybe I can take the recipe to someone else to make it?!?!?

  2. What a beautiful cake for a wonderful cause!
