PostHeaderIcon Easy Canada Day Cake


It only takes 15 minutes to prep this festive cake!

Canada Day is tomorrow, July 1st and I wanted to make something festive.  Sure I could make my Mom’s Cherry Cheesecake because it’s red and white, but I wanted to be a little more creative so I went internet hunting for an easy and quick dessert recipe.  I found it on Kraft Canada’s website and it’s called Canadian Flag Cake.  The name says it all; the cake looks like the Canadian flag except much more delicious because the maple leaf is make out of sliced strawberries.  The cake is easy to make using store-bought pound cake and Jell-o; it actually sounds similar to a strawberry shortcake.  I can’t wait to try this!  Happy Canada Day! 

CANADIAN FLAG CAKE

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.

VARIATION  You can also quick-set the jelly using frozen sliced strawberries. Dissolve the jelly powders in boiling water as directed. Add 1 cup each frozen strawberries and ice cubes; stir 3 to 5 min. or until thickened. Remove any unmelted ice. Continue as directed, decorating with 2 cups sliced fresh strawberries.

HOW TO DECORATE  Using a toothpick, trace a maple leaf pattern on top of dessert. Place a strawberry slice on each leaf point, then fill in the leaf with remaining strawberries.
