Step 3

Create the stars portion by adding four rows of six blueberries.

Step 4

Add the sliced strawberries on the cake horizontally to create the “red and white” stripes. Continue to add strawberry stripes until desired look is achieved.

Step 5

Enjoy!! If you aren’t serving immediately, we recommend putting your cake back in the box (don’t worry, the strawberries fit just fine) and placing the cake in the freezer until 15-20 minutes before serving time.
