  • 1 (16 ounce) box angel food cake mix
  • 1 (3 ounce) box strawberry Jello
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • 1 (3.3 ounce) box white chocolate instant pudding
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping thawed
  • 1 pound strawberries
  • 1 pint blueberries


  • Preheat oven to 350ºF. Do not grease 9-inch by 13-inch pan.
  • Mix angel food cake mix according to package instructions (the one I used only required water). Pour into ungreased pan and bake until firm to the touch, about 30 minutes. If the center still jiggles, bake it 5 minutes longer.
  • Cool completely, at least 1 hour. Using a fork, pierce cake in rows about 1/2-inch apart. When the fork becomes sticky, dip tines in water to clean (typically at the end of each row).
  • Pour Jello into a medium bowl and whisk in boiling water. When Jello is dissolved, stir in cold water. Drizzle over the entire surface of cake. Cover and refrigerate at least 3 hours or overnight.
  • In a large bowl, or in a standing mixer fit with the whisk attachment, combine pudding and milk until well blended. Gently fold in whipped topping.
  • Spread frosting on cake and arrange berries on top to resemble an American flag. Store in refrigerator.
