Wave-Your-Flag Cake Recipe

Wave-Your-Flag Cake

1 qt. strawberries (4 cups), divided

1 ½ cups boiling water

1 pkg. (8 serving size) Jell-O Strawberry flavor Gelatin

Ice cubes

1 cup cold water

1 pkg. (12 oz.) pound cake, cut into 10 slices

1 1/3 cups blueberries, divided

1 tub (8 oz.) Cool Whip Whipped Topping, thawed


Slice 1 cup of the strawberries.  Halve the remaining strawberries; set aside.

Stir boiling water into the dry gelatin mix in large bowl minutes until completely dissolved.  Add enough ice to cold water to measure 2 cups.  Add to gelatin; stir until ice is melted.  Refrigerate 5 minutes or until slightly thickened (consistency of unbeaten egg whites).

Meanwhile, line bottom of 13×9 inch dish with cake slices.  Add sliced strawberries and 1 cup of the blueberries to thickened gelatin; stir gently.  Spoon over cake slices.

Refrigerate 4 hours or until firm.  Spread whipped topping over gelatin.  Arrange strawberry halves on whipped topping for “stripes” of the flag.  Arrange remaining 1/3 cup blueberries on whipped topping for “stars”.  Store in refrigerator.
