How to make the Fourth of July Flag cake to look like a flag
You'll need: 2 pints of strawberries, halved 1 1/3 cup of blueberries 1 Sara Lee Poundcake, thawed, cut into slices and laid in the bottom of a cake pan (or bake your favorite white cake) 1 Tub of Cool Whip whipped topping
Assemble: Cover cake with whipped topping. Place strawberries and blueberries on whipped topping to create a flag design. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Enjoy!
This is a "Firecracker Cake" - named after the "firecrackers" on top.
The firecrackers are made out of marshmallows on a skewer that have been coated with red, edible spray paint, and then topped with a flattened, round gummy yellow candy. Coming out of the firecrackers is red licorice.
Inside the cake, the layers are red, white and blue! Make a white cake with three layers, and before baking each layer stir in some food coloring!
Even if you choose a different design for the outside of the cake, doing the inside like this makes a very patriotic cake!
