As I mentioned in my last post sharing the recipe for Canada Day themed Strawberry Cheesecake Bites,
I unfortunately did not get a chance to make those for Canada Day since I had very limited time on my hands and preferred to make the maple leaf graham crackers from scratch.
So, I decided to make this awesome Canadian Flag Cake recipe which I found from Kraft Canada’s website.
What I love about this recipe was that not only was it super-duper easy with limited ingredients required, but also that it wasn’t so heavy and truly perfect for the warm Canada Day weather.
Plus, who doesn’t love jello, cake AND fresh strawberries? All favourites in my household, especially for my daughter.
Okay, aside from my pathetic excuse of a maple leaf, this cake was delish! And such a big hit with my family and my guests.
- 1 pkg. (298 g) prepared pound cake, cut into 12 slices (I couldn’t find a prepared pound cake so I went with a plain loaf cake and it tasted JUST as good – trust me!)
- 2 cups boiling water
- 2 pkg. (85 g each) Jell-O Strawberry Jelly Powder (I accidently grabbed 1 strawberry and 1 watermelon jello and what a pleasant surprise!)
- 3 cups ice cubes
- 3 cups sliced fresh strawberries, divided
- 2 cups thawed Cool Whip Whipped Topping (I used Nutriwhip – same taste)
Try it for your next event.
You can always substitute the jello flavours and design on top to create whatever you like for any occasion. Enjoy!
