I posted this in Sept but was asked for it again since I put it as my header, I saw PW had a different patriotic cake. This one of mine is way too simple
one strawberry cake mix baked as usual
1 can strawberry pie filling
1 quart strawberries
one pint cool whip
Make one strawberry cake mix in 2 8 or 9 inch round cake pans.
take on separate plates to the place you are going to serve because it does not travel well when assembled. Place first cake on cake plate, pour canned strawberry pie filling on top, carefully cover w/ top cake layer, clear edges of pie filling, frost whole cake w/ cool whip.
Wash , hull and cut in half one quart strawberries, dry, place on bottom and top edge as shown and make a star design w/ blueberries enjoy:)
