Canadian Flag Cake

Happy (very belated) Canada Day! :)

I have been 'mia' from this blog for awhile now, and really have no good excuses; what can I say other than it's summertime and things are busy busy.

This Canada Day I made this cake to help celebrate the great day. It was delicious...but then again, what isn't with whip cream, strawberries and cake! Mmm...

A co-worker of mine found this recipe on the kraft website.

1 pkg of pound cake, cut into 12 strips
2 cups of boiling water
2 pkgs of strawberry jello powder
3 cups of ice cubes
3 cups of sliced fresh strawberries
2 cups of thawed cool whip topping

Cover the bottom of a 13x9 inch dish with the cake slices; set aside;
Add the boiling water to the jello powders in a large bowl; stir for 2 minutes until it is completely dissolved. Add ice cubes; stir 3 to 5 minutes or until jelly is thickened. Remove any unmelted ice. Stir in 1 cup of strawberries; pour over cake slices; Refrigerate for 15 minutes. Cover it with cool whip.

Refrigerate for 4 hours or until jelly is firm. Arrange remaining strawberries over the dessert to resemble the Canadian flag.
(to do this step, take toothpicks and place in an outlined shape of a maple leaf and place the strawberries within the toothpicked shape.)

Next time, I may even skip the jello portion of this recipe to speed the process up - because it would be JUST as delicious with or without it! :)

1 Hot Thoughts:


Neat! I've always wanted to see someone make this cake in real life! Well done! I'm sure my maple leaf would look like a big red blob if I attempted it! :)
