Canadian Flag Cake with Strawberries

Happy Canada Day to Kitchen Parade's many Canadian readers! How about a crowd-pleasing strawberries & cream poke cake to highlight your own patriotic celebration? It's fun, it's festive and best of all, it's super-easy to make. The recipe uses a trio of conveniences, a box cake mix, two boxes of strawberry gelatin and a couple of cartons of whipped topping like Cool Whip. But wow, this cake is extra tempting, so fresh and summery, thanks to a full 2 pounds (900g) of juicy, ripe (and Canadian red?!) strawberries. (And for the American followers, the recipe is just updated with an American flag cake and a "red, white and blue" summer cake . This last version works all summer long, it's such a pretty summer cake!) Such Beautiful Color! Potluck & Party Friendly Especially for Canada Day and July 4th Celebrations. Budget Friendly. Just Four Ingredients! A Real Crowd Favorite.

Let's Try This Again: The Ice Cream Edition of Seasonal Sundays

Ooops. For about three hours yesterday (Sunday) morning, the Ice Cream edition of Seasonal Sundays was pure code, no content. It was totally my error, publishing the wrong file for only the second time since 2002, but still, dang, I wish it hadn't happened. So if what you saw in email or RSS was confusing gibberish, well, here's the correct link, Summer Ice Cream (Week 26) . It's a good one, I think! If what you saw was fine, see you next Sunday! © Copyright Kitchen Parade 2023
