Epicurious

Red, white, and blue foods are all the rage on the Fourth of July, but each year, one recipe takes the prize for most patriotic of the pack: the July 4th Flag Cake.

This dessert has been making waves at Independence Day celebrations for decades, and thanks to its generous size, it provides ample servings for summertime crowds. But we've done away with the classic vanilla sheet cake and buttercream frosting and dreamed up a tasty trio of moist chocolate cake, tangy cream cheese frosting and the season's freshest berries.

Check out the slideshow above for a July 4th Flag Cake recipe and step-by-step photos displaying the decoration of the cake.
