American Flag Cake


1 package Duncan Hines® Classic White Cake Mix
1 (3 oz.) package red flavor gelatin
1 (8 oz.) container whipped topping
1 cup boiling water
½ cup cold water
1 pint strawberries
1 cup blueberries
1 cup miniature marshmallows
aluminum foil/fancy foil - color of your choice
star shaped stickers
miniature American candy flags


Preheat oven to 350 °F. Grease and flour a 13"x 9" pan.
Prepare, bake and cool cake according to package directions.
Use a large fork to make holes in the cake about every ½".
Pour gelatin into a large bowl. Add boiling water and mix until gelatin is completely dissolved. Stir in cold water. Pour gelatin over the cake allowing it to run into the holes.
Refrigerate cake for 3 to 4 hours before serving.
Cover a cake tray with aluminum foil then place on tray to decorate.
Frost the sides and top with whipped topping. Then arrange strawberries, blueberries and marshmallows on the cake to create a 'stars & stripes' pattern. Use the blueberries to create a blue background in the upper left hand corner.
Take your foil stars and miniature American flags and decorate the sides of the cake. Once you have finished decorating the cake, place in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve it.
