All-American Flag Cake Recipe, 4th of July Weekend Special

The All-American Flag Cake is a patriotic dessert featuring a yellow cake infused with strawberry Jell-O, layered with vanilla pudding and whipped topping, adorned with blueberries and strawberries to mimic the American flag.

Dish Info

– 1 (15.25 ounce) package yellow cake mix – 1 cup water – ⅓ cup vegetable oil – 3 large eggs – 1 (3 ounce) package strawberry-flavored Jell-O mix – ½ cup boiling water – 1 (3.5 ounce) package instant vanilla


– 1 ½ cups milk – ½ cup fresh blueberries – 2 cups frozen whipped topping, thawed – ½ cup fresh blueberries – 1 ½ cups sliced fresh strawberries – ½ cup miniature marshmallows


Combine yellow cake mix, water, vegetable oil, and eggs. Beat until smooth, then bake in a preheated oven until golden brown and a toothpick inserted comes out clean. This step ensures a sturdy base for the layered dessert.


Dissolve strawberry Jell-O in boiling water, stirring until fully dissolved. Once the cake has cooled, poke holes all over its surface with a fork and slowly pour the prepared Jell-O mixture over the cake. Refrigerate to allow the Jell-O to set and infuse the cake with its fruity flavor.


In a separate bowl, whisk together instant vanilla pudding mix and milk until thickened. This creamy pudding layer adds a delightful contrast to the cake's texture and complements the fruity flavors of the Jell-O.


Carefully split the cooled cake horizontally into two layers. Spread the prepared vanilla pudding and blueberry mixture evenly over the bottom cake layer, ensuring it reaches the edges.


Cover the entire cake with thawed whipped topping, spreading it smoothly over the top and sides. Create the American flag design by arranging fresh blueberries in a square formation in the upper left corner of the cake to represent stars.
