Canada Day Flag Cake

cakeHere’s a KRAFT recipe that I came across that I might try for Canada Day festivities!

Strawberries are in season so it’s a perfect time to give it a try. Not to mention a prep time of 15 minutes and serves 12 people. Great for that “Mayor Miller Cancels Toronto’s Canada Day Celebrations” party I’ve been invited to.

Prep Time:15 min
Total Time: 4 hr 30 min
Makes: 12 servings, 1/12 dessert (183 g) each

Ingredients:
1 pkg. (298 g) pound cake, cut into 12 slices
2 cups boiling water
2 pkg. (85 g each) JELL-O Strawberry Jelly Powder
3 cups ice cubes
3 cups sliced fresh strawberries, divided
2 cups thawed COOL WHIP Whipped Topping

* COVER bottom of 13×9-inch dish with cake slices; set aside.
* ADD boiling water to jelly powders in large bowl; stir 2 min. until completely dissolved. Add ice cubes; stir 3 to 5 min. or until jelly is thickened. Remove any unmelted ice. Stir in 1 cup strawberries; pour over cake slices. Refrigerate 15 min. Cover with Cool Whip.
* REFRIGERATE 4 hours or until jelly is firm. Arrange remaining strawberries over dessert to resemble the Canadian flag.
