Cool Berry Flag Cake

By Emily Cowan May 9, 2024

This cool, refreshing "cake" does double-duty for the summer holidays of Memorial Day and July 4th.

You'll Need:

  • 10 sheets graham crackers
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 4 teaspoons butter, melted
  • Light whipped topping, room temperature (for easy spreading)
  • Raspberries OR Strawberries, sliced 
  • Blueberries

How To:

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Place graham crackers and sugar in food processor and blend until crumbled. Drizzle in melted butter and continue to blend until butter has been evenly distributed throughout mixture.
  3. Press graham cracker mixture firmly into the bottom of a 9x13 cake pan. Bake for 10 minutes. Cool completely.
  4. Spread pan with 1/2-inch layer of whipped topping until crust is completely covered. Cool in refrigerator for 20 minutes.
  5. Make a "flag" with blueberries for stars and strawberry slices for stripes. Chill until ready to serve!

My toddlers and I love making this cake! Adding the fruit to decorate the flag is always their favorite part!
