Morning Blogging Friends:) I just wanted to take this time to wish everyone a Happy Memorial Day, and to remember to honor all who have served for OUR GREAT COUNTRY!! I know we will be flying out flag, and saying a prayer for all our men and women in service, and the fallen soilders. My husband served 6 years active Army, and 2 national guard. I know what its like to be a military wife, and to have young children, it is hard, but I was always and still am proud of my husband. He and I stuck it out for 8 years military life. We have our best memories in the military:) And some of our hardest and saddest memories in the miltary, but it all made us stronger. I THANK all serving now, and in the past, soilders who have gone to heaven to be with Our Lord as a fallen HERO, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I wanted to share a cake I made in honor of Memorial Day. Its a strawberry jello cake, and I added some blueberries and fresh cut strawberries to resemble a flag design on top. I know the colors are not where they should be on a traditional flag, but I like the design all the same:)
Flag Jello Cake
1 box yellow cake mix(make cake mix according to the package)
after cake is cooled poke several holes in it using a fork
Take one small package of jello mix and make it according to the box( you may use any flavor, but I used strawberry to go with the stawberries on the theme of my cake)
pour liguid jello mixture over cake
then place in fridge for a few hours
add almost 1 tub of cool whip( depending on how thick you want the cool whip on your cake)
add fresh fruit in my case strawberries and blueberries I made in a flag design this time but I usually just add strawberries on top or blueberries any fruit that goes with your jello flavoring would be the best
be sure to leave your cake in the fridge keep it cool when not eating:)
All this is great cake, hope you enjoy:)YUMMY!!!
