Company was quite impressed with this dessert. I did keep it in the 13x9 glass pan; however, for convenience. For frosting, I used 8oz sugar free Cool Whip and 8oz non-fat cream cheese whipped together with a few tbls Splenda. The actual flag has 7 red stripes and had to cut the strawberries smaller to get it to the actual size and used the tiny marshmallows for the white stripes. Also used 50 blueberries. Also, after 30 min after taking the cake out of the oven, punctured the cake with handle of small wooden spoon about 1 inch intervals and spooned jello over the cake filling the holes. In making the jello, you use only 1 3/4 c. liquid and let stand to room temp prior to putting over cake. It was beautiful when cut....the red jello made stripes into the white cake and added taste. You could use sugar-free jello if you are cutting calories.
