Simple Patriotic Cake Plus More Red, White, and Blue Recipe Ideas!

The 4th of July is one of my favorite holidays; parades, family, friends, fireworks, and food…you can’t forget the food!

This is a cake I could see my mom making, it’s semi-homemade, quick & easy, and super delicious.


– store-bought Angel Food cake – whipping cream – vanilla extract – cream cheese – powdered sugar – strawberries – blueberries

Prep Time: 1h 10 mins.

Servings: 8 people

NOTE: The frosting on the cake will start to melt if left out for more than 2 hours, less if in the heat. So keep it in the fridge until just before serving.

Follow our easy instructions for success!

Using a serrated knife cut off the top 1 inch of cake crosswise; set aside (see picture above).


Using a paring knife, cut all around the cake 1 inch from the inner edge. DO NOT cut all the way through the bottom.


In the bowl of a stand mixer add the whipping cream and vanilla, whip on medium-high until stiff peaks form, about  4-5 minutes.


In a small bowl add 1 cup of the Cream Cheese Whipped Cream Frosting. Fold in the berries and fill the cake cavity.


Add the cake top back on and frost the entire cake with the remaining frosting and garnish with reserved berries.
