4th of July Cake

I saw this idea on a random website and it looked really simple, so I attempted it. I made this for my cousin's annual 4th of July party. So cute!

Prep time: 10 minutes
Bake time: 30-35 minutes

-cake mix (and water, vegetable oil, and 3 eggs)
-white frosting
-1 container of strawberries
-1 container of blueberries

1. Mix the cake mix, eggs, water, and oil together and bake in the oven according to the box directions.

Baked to perfection
2. Allow the cake to cool for at least an hour. Frost with white frosting (I used cream cheese, but vanilla is fine, or any other white frosting flavor).

Frost that bad boy like your life depends on it!
3. Wash the blueberries and strawberries. Cut the strawberries in half length-wise, and the halves one more time length-wise.

4. Fill the upper left hand corner of the cake with rows of blueberries for the "stars." Then, lay the strawberries length-wise end to end across the cake for the "stripes."

Almost too good to eat. Almost.
Now, proudly display that masterpiece. Then eat it. Happy 4th of July!!

Baby, you're a firework!
