Cream Cheese Flag Cake

Le patriotisme est-il plus exacerbé aux Etats-Unis qu’en Europe? Je pense que oui. J’en veux pour preuve cette recette proposée sur une boîte de Philadelphia Cream Cheese. La recette explique comment faire un drapeau étoilé (a star spangled banner) avec des fraises, des myrtilles et du cream cheese !

Flag Cake

Star Spangled Banner Cake

  • 1 (16 oz.) family size Sara Lee Pound Cake, frozen
  • 2 (8 oz.) packages cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 cups fresh strawberries, stems removed and sliced
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 2 tablespoons water (optional)

Cut pound cake horizontally into 4 equal-size layers. In a medium blow, beat cream cheese until light and fluffy; add powdered sugar and vanilla, beating until smooth. Add water as necessary to achieve desired consistency.
Arrange a cake layer on a serving plate; spread with frosting. Cover with a layer of strawberries. Place a second cake layer atop the strawberries; evenly spread with frosting. Top with a layer of blueberries. Place a third cake layer atop the blueberries; repeat with frosting and strawberries. Finish with a fourth cake layer.
Frost top of cake with remaining frosting. Decorate top to resemble an American flag. Place blueberries in the upper left corner. Make flag stripes with alternating horizontal rows of strawberry slices and frosting.
