You know, I can't decide if I like flag cake because it's retro and kitschy, or if I don't like it because it's...uh...retro and kitschy.
Anywho, I do like these 4th of July Creme Filled Strawberries by Naomi at Bakers Royale. She offers several shortcuts worthy of Sandra Lee so you can spend less time prepping and more time partying.
If you're celebrating Canada Day today, you can swap out the blueberry for a raspberry and flavor the whipped cream with maple syrup. Not bad, eh?
