Stars & Stripes Cake

  • 1 box yellow or white cake mix,
    or use your favorite yellow or white cake recipe.
  • 1 quart fresh blueberries
  • 1 to 1-1/2 quarts fresh strawberries
  • 3 cups whipping cream 
  • 1/2 cup confectioner's sugar
  • A large container of whipped topping such as Cool Whip® or Cool Whip® Light can be used instead of making a real whipped cream topping with whipping cream and confectioner's sugar.

Preparation -
Bake the cake in a greased and floured 9" x 13" inch cake pan. Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack for about 10 minutes. Carefully remove the cake from the pan to a serving plate or board. Cool completely.

Whip the cream hard and add with the confectioner's sugar to make a real whipped cream topping. Or... use Cool Whip® instead.  Spread the topping evenly over the top and sides of cake, saving some for decorating.

To Decorate - In the upper left hand corner, arrange the blueberries for the blue part of an American flag.  Cut the strawberries in half lengthwise.  Arrange rows of strawberries for the red stripes.  Fill a pastry bag with whipped topping. Add rows of white stars to the blueberry covered area. Use any remaining topping to build up and define the white rows between the red rows of strawberries. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
