I have been making the Amercan Flag Cake since my daughter Vera was a little girl. I let her decorate the cake by herself and she was always a hit when she brought the cake to a holiday BBQ. It’s easy, fun , delish and a really good way to get kids in the kitchen hands on. Hope you try it!
American Flag Cake
1 pkg cake mix – any flavor
1 (8 oz) container whipped topping
1-2 pint strawberries
1 1/2 cup blueberries
Preheat oven to 350 °F.
Grease and flour a 13×9-inch pan
Prepare, bake and cool cake according to package directions.
Frost the sides and top with whipped topping.
Arrange strawberries, blueberries on cake to create a ‘stars & stripes’ pattern.
Use the blueberries to create a blue background in the upper left hand corner.
Once you have finished decorating the cake, place in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve it.
Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place cooled cake on top and decorate, carry and serve. Put any left over fruit around the cake.
Have a wonderful summer !

- You don’t have to spend alot of money to decorate and host a holiday party this year. Use what you have around you to decorate and whats around your neightborhood for your bash.
String lights around the doors, windows or the buffet table.
Fill same/like colored ornaments in a large glass bowls and vases
Find large serving platters at the Dollar Stores or borrow from your family and friends. (I like to buy solid colors or clear platters, they go with every season all year round).
Suggest that your guests each bring their favorite bottle of wine to the party for everyone to sample
Almost every supermarket offer whole dinner packages (including dessert) for 10 people. Pick up the dinner, place bowls of nuts and olives for when your guests arrive – go put on your party best and enjoy your guests and your party. Have a wonderful time :)
Play a board game and pretty soon everyone will be talking , laughing and having a great time!
