  • 13 ½ graham crackers
  • 6 cups cool whip
  • 5 cups sliced fresh strawberries the amount of strawberries may vary between 4 ½ to 6 cups depending on their size


  • Create an even layer of graham crackers on the bottom of an 9 x 9 pan. You'll need 6 graham crackers squares, or 4 ½ full graham crackers.
  • Top the graham crackers with a layer of 2 cups of cool whip. Smooth it out into an even layer as best as possible using a rubber or offset spatula.
  • Create a layer of strawberry slices on top of the layer of cool whip.
  • Repeat a second layer of graham crackers, cool whip and strawberry slices. Again, repeat a third layer of graham crackers and cool whip.
  • To create the flag design: create stripes of strawberry slices spaced by white stripes of cool whip to create the red and white stripes. Then, add ¼ cup of blueberries to a square in the top left corner to create the blue section of the flag.
  • Refrigerate overnight, or at least 8 hours. Keep chilled until ready to serve.


  • To make in an 8 x 8 baking dish: Use 4 ½ cups of sliced strawberries, 5 cups of cool whip, and 13 graham crackers.
  • Wait to create the flag design until you're about to serve the cake for the freshest-looking fruit slices! The strawberries can lose some of their fresh appearance as the cake chills overnight.
  • Top with strawberry syrup for an extra drizzle of sweetness!
