How to make this recipe
1 – Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and spray a 9×13-inch pan with nonstick cooking spray.
2 – In a large bowl, add the the cake mix, Greek yogurt and water.
3 – Mix until well blended, then pour cake mixture into the prepared baking pan.
4 – Bake for about 25 minutes.
5 – Once the cake has cooled, defrost the tub of whipped topping and spread over the top of the cake as frosting
6 – Slice strawberries into slices. I get about 4-5 slices per strawberry, but will depend on the size of your strawberries.
7 – Decorate cake like the American flag. I use 25 blueberries to make 5 rows of 5 in the upper lefthand corner. Followed by 5 rows of sliced strawberries.
How do I store my flag cake?
The cake will need to be refrigerated once frosted with the whipped topping. Store your cake, in an airtight container, in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
Can I freeze a my cake?
Yes! However, I would suggest freezing before adding the whipped topping. Once you’re ready to remove from freezer it will take about 2-3 hours to thaw.
