Top Review by Nado2003

We used to have these for 4th of July picnics in Michigan. I made this last July 4th, frosted it with fat-free whipped topping, and decorated with fresh strawberries and blueberries into the shape of the American flag. Thank you for posting the recipe. I do not know how to tell the people not to rotate the photo so that it shows it like the US flag. They keep rotating it and loosing the effect.
