This easy, festive cake will be the highlight of your patriotic party.
1 box white or yellow cake mix
1 pint blueberries
1 pint strawberries or 2 pints rasberries
1 LG container Cool Whipcream
1 can Readiwhip or small container Cool Whip with pastry bag and star tip.
Bake cake as directed in a 9 x 13 pan. Cool cake completely. Remove leaf and stem from top of fruit. If using strawberries, slice from top to tip in halves or quarters depending on size. Using whipped cream spread even smooth layer over entire cake. Use toothpick to draw the flag box and red stripes. Star box should be about 4 or inches. A real flag has 13 strips but the cake can only fit about 5. Make sure you leave space between red stripes for white ones. The top and bottom stripes are red.
Place whole blueberries in star box as tightly as possible. This is the blue field for your stars. Gently place rasberries or strawberry strips along red stripes from left to right. Starting at the top next to star field to edge of cake. Place all red stripes. Using readiwhip or pastry bag with star tip, place alternating number rows of stars on blueberry field. (I usually do 5 and 4.)
For fancy look depending on time you may want to pipe stripes in white whipped cream as well. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
