I have a super fun (not to mention easy) Red, White and Blue Flag Cake to share with you, the Wave Your Flag “Cake” from the folks at Kraft. A fun and summery twist on cake that is perfect to serve at your Fourth Of July parties, picnics or get togethers.
This cake brings together fresh strawberries and blueberries, ready made pound cake, JELL-O Gelatin and COOL WHIP Whipped Topping. While it’s simple to make, it is also beautiful and and makes for a gorgeous dessert presentation.
You start by layering your pound cake slices into a 13×9 inch pan.
After that you mix up your JELL-O Gelatin, then add some ice to the mixture to help quickly cool it to allow it to set. Once it is the right consistency, about that of unbeaten egg whites, you will add some of your strawberries and blueberries to the JELL-O, then pour the mixture over your pound cake slices.
Then into the fridge it goes to chill for at least four hours. Once it’s chilled, you spread your COOL WHIP Whipped topping on top, then use the remaining berries to create the look of a flag. So easy, and so pretty!
We could have used another row of strawberries on our cake, but I let the kids help me decorate and sometimes letting the kiddos take pride in their job well done is more important than perfection.
Kraft has a number of great red, white and blue dessert options for the Fourth Of July. Here are some of my favorites…
