No Bake Flag Cake

One of the most popular posts on the blog is Strawberry Icebox Cake.  It’s layers of graham crackers, whipped cream, strawberries and ganache that come together and form the easiest, most irresistible crowd-pleasing dessert.  For Memorial Day, I decided to leave off the chocolate and turn it into a flag cake.


It’s also perfect for 4th of July and Flag Day, both of which are coming up soon after.   “Recipe” (if you can call it that) and how-to assembly video at the bottom!
