A Cake for the 4th of July

 My family likes to get festive when it comes to holidays, most of the time we go over the top. lol which I like to consider a good thing. For the last few days I've been trying to think of what I could take to our family get together for the 4th of July. Then it hit me, my mom used to make this strawberry cake all the time when I was a kid. Since I wanted to go with the theme, I tried it out with a white cake and dyed it blue. Turns out, it's just as good. 
All you need to do is add some blue food coloring to a white cake mix (I used a store bought one but if you can make it from scratch, then you go girl! One day, I'll be right there with you) For the frosting, add about 4 teaspoons of tropical punch kool-aid to one container of cool whip. Mix that together, frost the cake, and add sliced strawberries on top. That simple. And is everyone will love this.
Do you have any favorite sweets for the 4th of July?
