I love this cake and put a layer of vanilla pudding before the cool whip...it's Awesome!!

06/29/2014

This was a very cheap and easy recipe that I made for Canada Day this year.

07/20/2013

I have made this recipe many times and it has always been a hit. This time I used a chocolate pound cake instead of the plain and the result was an even bigger hit! The visual was the same but the taste was like a black forest cake. I will use a chocolate pound cake again and I certainly didn't find that it was soggy.

07/08/2013

I am so excited to try this recipe, I'm not going to use the pound cake for fear of the sogginess, however I am using a tin of fruit cocktail in the jello.. learnt this from my mom growing up... I am also going to place a layer of custard. Question: should I put the custard in between the layers of jello and whip cream, or in between layers of jello? I am newto the cooking scene so I welcome your tips!

06/26/2013

Great light dessert that surprises everyone!

05/13/2013

great recipe I make this every july as we go strawberry picking and then i make this. It is awesome. Also great with a blueberry strawberry topping.

12/26/2012

The first few times I made this I found that while it was delicious and looked awesome from the top, the jello saturated the cake and made it mushy and sloppy looking. So this year, I tried something different: I followed the recipe to the letter, EXCEPT, I added one envelope of unflavoured gelatin to the jello powders when I added the boiling water. This gave it a little extra gelling boost and voila, no saturation, just an appetizing result and a pretty presentation when it was cut into.

06/15/2010

I have been making this cake for years--it is one of our Canada Day traditions. For people who have issues with soggy pound cake, I have found that cubing angel food cake in its place creates a nicer texture. The angel food cake does not soak up the jello in the same way.

07/19/2006

Looks great but pound cake got soggy and tasted gross. Making again this year but just jello, coolwhip and strawberries.

06/29/2012

Easy to make and everyone was impressed!

06/27/2012

I save a lot of calories by using sugar-free strawberry Jell-o, light Cool Whip and Angel Food Cake. A light and lovely summer dessert idea!

06/20/2012

10/26/2011

we make this every canada day my husband LOVES it and he is not a dessert eater

07/09/2011

really easy to make and really easy to eat! I used raspberries instead of strawberries, my maple leaf didn't look as much like a maple leaf, but it was delicious.

07/05/2011

Nice & light cake Had problems making the flag. The tooth pick tracing doesn't work on thawed cool whip. I am not sure how this worked for everyone. Any ideas?

07/04/2011

I'll be making this cake again next Canada Day. It was amazing and everyone loved it. It's a change from traditional cake..more like an English trifle. I found that the jello made it 'light' tasting and a great dessert to serve after a big meal. My daughter-in-law and I had fun decorating it.

07/04/2011

This cake is one of our Canada Day traditions now. I used angel food cake instead of pound cake and is very nice as well.

07/03/2011

I like the idea of decorating with cool whip and strawberries to make a flag cake, but the combination of cake and jello was just a little too weird for me. Not bad, but I just don't get it. Next time I may try it using pudding instead of jello so it's more like a trifle.

07/02/2011

This cake looks and tastes absolutely delicious. Happy Canada Day!!

06/30/2011

This is the traditional dessert for our Canada Day family BBQ - one of my daughters lives in Scotland and even she makes this for July 1. Such a light and tasty cake.....it just "goes" with our Hamburgers & hotdogs (& beer)

06/29/2011

I've made this for Canada Day it was not only a great hit but tasted great as well. I also took white and red plastic table cloths and put them on the table like a Canadian flag, the I cut out a maple leaf out of red fun foam to put in the centre. With red and white serviettes it looked awesom.

07/05/2006

Always turns out great, and to rave reviews, too!

06/27/2006

MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS ALL LIKED IT IWILL MAKE IT AGAIN IN 2 WEEKS FOR COMPANY.

07/06/2006

I have wanted to make this cake for years. This was finally the year for me...so yummy and delicious. I will be making it every year now. It was a huge hit with my 5 year old and my husband :)

07/10/2010

Big hit on Canada Day after our BBQ. Leftovers were great the next day as well! Surprisingly easy to make and with fresh strawberries out right now, it was the perfect dessert!

07/05/2010

this was a big hit with my family and friends Thanks

07/03/2010

I made this for our Canada Day celebration (a day before since we'll be travelling today). I made it with Angel Food Cake and light Cool Whip and it was amazing! It looked great, it tasted great, and everyone loved it, will definitely make this again! Happy Canada Day!

07/01/2010

I put layered cooked vanilla pudding on top of the jello, almost like a trifle. It was so tasty. I definitely would make it again. The family loved it.

06/29/2010

I've made this cake every Canada day for about 4 - 5 years. The first time I made it I followed the directions exactly, and found the jello made the cake too mushy. Since then, I've just made the cake without the jello and like it much better that way.

06/26/2010

This will be the 3rd year in a row making this cake for July 1st celebration. My friends keep on requesting it!

07/05/2006

A great way to celebrate Canada's birthday with family and friends. Easy to make and it's a dessert that tastes great, without being heavy.

06/12/2010

So easy to make with very few ingredients. Everyone loved it and was impressed with the design on the top.

09/17/2009

Great recipe. The kids enjoyed making thier own Canada Day Cake .Will make again!!

07/08/2009

I loved this recipe! Although when i went grocery shopping for the ingredients i couldn't find pound cake at any of our grocery stores so i used jelly rolls which worked very well. I'll definately use this again!

07/02/2009

this was fast and easy and all the guest were very impressed! Its a nice light dessert.

07/01/2009

This is a Canada Day Tradition in our family. Simple, tasty and great looking. Happy Canada Day

07/01/2009

I made this last year. It is so simple, light and delicious. The kids love it and the adults too. This year I am making 2 as my husband said there wasn't enough! Enjoy!

06/30/2009

02/10/2009

I have been making this Canada Day Cake for the last 8 years,its a must! And i not only make one,i have to make two! Its a real big HIT every year! Love It <3

06/24/2009

I've made this recipe several times and it's a hit every time!!! Easy to make, especially now that I've found a strawberry slicer (looks like an egg slicer).

06/20/2009

05/12/2009

LOVE this cake! my mom has made it for a few years now and we all love it! A different combination for a cake but it sure makes you go for seconds! This time I get to make it at my house, I cant wait!!

07/05/2008

This was such a hit. Easy to make, and made me look like a super star...AND delicious!

07/04/2008

I made this for a Canada Day brunch. So easy and so patriotic. Not only did it look great but was easy to make and tasted delicious. Definitely a keeper!

07/02/2008

It was really easy to make and everyone loved the design

07/02/2008

this cake was the hit of the party, not a bit was left

06/30/2008

Nice and easy, just how I like it !

06/30/2008

06/28/2008

06/26/2008

06/26/2008

Delicious, light and refreshing!

06/25/2008

This recipe is perfect for Canada Day I am going to make it.

06/25/2008

This cake is great and it tastes even better....When making jello let it sit in the fridge for about 3-4 minutes before putting it over the pound cake, this away the cake does not absorb all the jello liquid

06/25/2008

GREAT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

06/22/2008

Made this last year, was delicious! Everyone loved it, and not too difficult to make!

06/22/2008

it's so awesome.

06/19/2008

Such an easy recipe for a wonderful tribute dessert ... we've made it for the past 2 years and haven't had any complaints yet ... It might not look as "polished" as the picture but there was no mistaking what it was supposed to be ... We'll be making it at the cottage yet again this year for Canada Day!!

07/04/2006

Excellent, I made this for my granddaughters for July 1st and they loved it and so did everyone else at the party. Since then their parents have split up and the girls are going thru a rough time and they asked if I could make this cake so they can remember everyone being happy when eating it the last time. I lost the recipe and now you have put it on your site once more. Thank you so much. I have now files it in My Recipe Box.

06/18/2008

I read the comment about a "gooey" cake, so when I made it I used only one pkg of jelly powder and more strawberries. The jello I used was "sugar free" and I drizzled it over the cake instead of creating a full layer. It was a more solid dessert and I decorated it according to the instructions. My test cake disappeared in no time! As we get a lot of peaches in our area, I'm gearing up to make a peach version later in the summer!

06/18/2008

The cake was a hit, however I was disapointed that my strawberries did not look as clean and "pretty" as those in the sample.

04/23/2008

This cake is disgusting. Jello impregnanted pound cake? The cake ends up mushy, even when I followed the recipe exactly. It LOOKED good, though, and the kids didn't seem to mind the mushy texture, but next time I'll just make a cake and frost it to look like the Canadian flag.

04/01/2008

i find it is a great dessert for the summer and its not very sweet

03/31/2008

Simply delicious ,easy to make,this cake is always our 1st of July dessert

03/05/2008

12/27/2007

IT'S EASY TO MAKE AND SO REFRESHING IN THE SUMMER.

11/29/2007

Will make it again

09/27/2007

Had the neighbours over for a yard party and served this. Young and seasoned friends enjoyed it to the last crumb and it was the center piece for the Canada Day table.

09/22/2007

I made this for Canada Day 2007 & it was absolutely fabulous! There were no leftovers from this one!

09/08/2007

This was very delicious. I however, did have a bit of trouble making the maple leaf.

06/27/2006

Very easy to make and delicious for any occasion.

08/23/2007

although fast and simple , kind of blah tasting

08/13/2007

I thought this cake was great! The first time I had it was on Canada Day and someone else had made it and the cake turned out great!

07/29/2007

This cake was just delicious and not hard to make. Everyone seemed to like it! I loved it and would suggest anyone to try it out :)

07/24/2007

I have now made this cake a few times and each time it is a "hit". In our family it also has doubled as a family birthday cake.

07/19/2007

Absolutely delicious! It was a big party hit..will always make this now for Canada Day..and possible just as a summer treat! Very refreshing. I used both strawberries and rasberries, also used rasberry jello instead of strawberry jello. I mixed 1 pkg of cream cheese in with the cool whip (sort of combined recipe for this and the quilt cake

07/16/2007

I made this cake with my 7 year old daughter and the results were wonderful. We will definitely make this again!!!

07/12/2007

by faaar this is my FAVORITE recipe so far! i loved making it, it is super easy, and AMAZIINGLY GOOD! i was worried about putting cake with jello together, i thought it would be weird but it was the best part! i made this on Canada day and at my cousins christening and made a special decoration just for him, everyone loved it! thanks so much for inventing this recipe, it's just great! im dying to try some more.

07/11/2007

I made this cake for Canada Day for my husband,his mother and myself, it is absolutely fabulous and so easy to make. Thank You Kraft for the wonderful idea.

07/10/2007

Quick and easy and was gobbled up as quickly as it took to make it!

07/10/2007

very easy to make, and delicious. I used angel food cake as a base, and it was great.

07/06/2007

What an awesome dessert. Very festive and tastes great too. Very light tasting which is great after a big BBQ dinner!

07/05/2007

I made this cake for a Canada Day party that I hosted and everyone thought it was terrific. There was not a crumb left. The next day I recieved 6 calls for the recipe.

07/05/2007

This cake is a huge hit! Everyone wanted seconds!!

07/03/2007

What a great addition to a "Canada Day" celebration, easy to make, looked wonderful and tasted great. My kids think it might be an alternative to strawberry shortcake in the future!!

07/03/2007

07/03/2007

The recipe doesn't state that the jello has to be thick enough before pouring it in or the pound cake will absorb it. The only way I found this out was by watching the video after failing my first attempt. After watching the video I have found that there is no way to pour the jello in without the pound cake absorbing it.

07/03/2007

Excellent recipe!! I used fat free Cool Whip, light Jell-O and Angel Food Cake instead to make it a little lighter. Turned out great and the kids loved it!!

07/02/2007

great.. turned out great.. we tried it..Its so easy.. My husband wanted to make it.

07/02/2007

Delicious, but I found it hard to lift from the pan because it was wobbly. My first piece fell back in the pan on top of the cake and messed it up so I felt obliged to eat that piece also :) Everyone else had seconds and thirds also.

07/02/2007

So easy to make and so easy to please everyone. Made it for Canada Day 2007 and everyone enjoyed it.

07/01/2007

This cake was so simple to make and so pretty to look at!! My family loved it!!

07/01/2007

wow! i love this recipe, and so did my party guests. it was so easy to make. thank-you

07/01/2007

I am a Pastry Chef and my mother has Celiac Disease. It is always difficult to find desserts for her. Instead of using the pound cake we used a Gluten free one we made. What a fabulous recipe. I have taken several of your recipes and made them gluten free for her. Thanks so much for all of the ideas!!!!

06/30/2007

Very simple and made my dessert the talk of all my friends. Thanks for the great idea!

06/30/2007

Made this cake for our Canada Day Firework Celebration last night and it was a blast! It was so easy to make and fast. A definite keeper in my recipe file.

06/30/2007

I make this every year and it is always a hit. It has become tradition at our house. I first saw the recipe in a magazine and it turned out great the first time I tried it.

06/29/2007

Mad this last year, and I'm making it again...quick, easy and very delicious after a big barbeque meal.

07/04/2006

Very easy. Love the video.

06/05/2007

This was a huge hit last Canada day with my family and my children. It will be a new Canada day tradition in my family.

05/27/2007

thank you

05/22/2007

Friends of ours had a Korean exchange student who was retuning home recently. I took this to the pot luck and barely got a taste it dissapeared so fast. The flavor is fablous but the presentation is out standing. Trish...Kentville N.S.

03/07/2007

Delicious, easy to make and very patriotic! I made this for a family dinner on Canada Day last year and it was a huge hit!

02/20/2007

This dessert was awesome!!!Everyone loved it.My whole family including the kids who are usually very picky,and my friends and their kids as well.This was VERY fast and easy to make and also VERY delicious to eat.thank you kraft for the great recipes you offer.keep them coming please.

07/25/2006

I really liked this recipe. It was so easy & tasted so good. Such a quick Summer recipe.

07/18/2006

I was unable to get pound cake, so I used a regular white cake mix...it works great too!!! It was a hit!! And tastes light and wonderful!!

07/18/2006

Most of my guests loved it, I will probably make this desert a tradition each year

07/17/2006

Excellent recipe for a summer dessert for a crowd.

07/15/2006

Not only was this so easy to make, but delicious too. It always gets ohhhhh's and ahhhh's. I recommend.

07/15/2006

I made this for my Iraqui neighbours and another for my family. It was a big hit with everyone.

07/14/2006

07/13/2006

oh i feel it was really hard to make the maple leaf. But it's truly the best thing to serve to the guests that come to your house on Canada Day. taste wise the best!

07/13/2006

07/13/2006

Makes great centrepiece

07/12/2006

I made this cake the last 2 July 1st holidays for our street party. The adults and kids love the presentation. It is very easy to make and easy to freehand the Canadaian flag design by just looking at the picture. A hit with everyone!!

06/28/2006

Everyone loved it and thought I spent hours

07/12/2006

I am not an overly creative dessert maker, however, I tried this recipe and it was fantastic. Not only was it so easy to prepare, it was a huge hit at our Canada Day party.

07/12/2006

It was a great hit. Not overly sweet and very light.

07/12/2006

When this cake was first issued I made and it was a huge success. My family attended a Canada Day party this year and I was required to bring desserts. This was the first thing I thought of. It was again a huge success. It was almost gone before some other desserts were even thought of. My only advice to people who have never made this, try to get fair size strawberries. We had a smaller batch this year and it didn't lokk quite as nice as it does with big berries. Good luck and enjoy.

07/12/2006

My maple leaf didn't come out as precise as the picture but nobody seems to care. The cake disappeared fast. A good recipe that is light after a big meal.

07/11/2006

Not sure what the rave is all about. I found this extremely dry. Thinking jello should be poured onto cake before thickening it. Not to mention how difficult it was making maple leaf even with the stencil. Will not make this again!

07/11/2006

I saw this first in your 200l book. I tried it for each Canada Day since. Everyone loves it, and there are always comments about "how light it is". I make it for 4th of July using blueberries and raspberries. Lots of fun, and the reception is always the same. I have been told I will always be invited to my friend's Canada Day party if I bring THE CAKE.

07/11/2006

It was incredible. easy to do and a big hit at this years family BBQ. kids and adults alike loved it.. i was hoping to take some home but i didn't get to the little that was left was taken by relatives. I am going to make it again for kids parties without the flag.

07/11/2006

07/11/2006

Excellent recipe, easy and fun to make and everyone at our celebration loved it.

07/11/2006

A yummy cake which is easy to prepare. It is a favourite for Canada Day at our home.

04/08/2005

I made the Canadian Flag "cake" on Canada day & it was a big hit with our guests, not only for the presentation but delicious too. Thanks for the recipe. I will be making it every Canada day!!

07/10/2006

Hi - Everyone raved over the Canada Flag Cake - it was so easy and my daughter got the honour of decorating with the strawberries. Come up with more ideas like this for each and every holiday. Thanks

07/10/2006

I did not make this cake this year but I have made it for at least three(3) years previous and it was excellent. When we had guests and are neighbours got together they said how delicious it was and asked for the recipe. It is very easy to make and most delicious and worth the effort to make it.

07/10/2006

This is a quick, easy and delicious cake that my family loves. The kids especially love arranging the strawberry leaf!!!

07/10/2006

my family thought this was the greatest cake going. what a great way to celebrate canadas birthday. thanks kraft

07/10/2006

I made it (super easy!) and brought it to work - all my co-workers loved it. I guess it'll have to be an annual tradition now!!

07/10/2006

Nice addition to Canada Day buffet table.

07/10/2006

I made my own poke cake, and filled it with Strawberry Jello, then did the decorating. It was a big hit at our Canada Day BBQ. Lots of pictures were taken.

07/10/2006

refreshing

07/09/2006

07/09/2006

Had a great time making the Canadian Flag Cake...and it turned out great. Everyone loved it...there was none left.

07/09/2006

I have made this cake for several years from an earlier publication of the recipe and it is always a resonding success. This year I took it to the June meeting of a group to which I belong. We had a barbecued hamburges and then finished with the "Canadian Flag Cake". Happy Birthday Canada!!!

07/08/2006

We have to make the Canada Day cake every year now since I made it 3 years ago. The kids love it and it is the perfect dessert for our Canada Day celebrations.

07/08/2006

So delicious but so easy,I took this dessert to a July 1st celebration, everyone loved it, very impressed. A big hit !

07/08/2006

Had to make Two and then a third. Couldn't get enough..

07/08/2006

It was qick and easy to make and is a light refreshing dessert on a hot day. MY FRIENDS WERE ALSO IMPRESSED WITH MY HIDDEN TALENT.

07/07/2006

This recipe was very easy to prepare. Everyone enjoyed it and liked the Canada Day theme.

07/07/2006

I have made this recipe since it first came out about 8-10 years ago. I have made it for my family each year. We LOVE it! It is our favourite Canada Day cottage dessert.

07/07/2006

I really enjoyed this cake. Thank you for sending it to me.

07/07/2006

The stores here don't make Pound cakes anymore so the Bakery clerk told me to try the "Golden Loaf Cake" at which I did, it turned out great, We here in Canada at our house will surely make this one every year, from now on Thanks wiseowl

07/07/2006

I made the Canadian Flag "Cake" on Canada Day for a Barbeque Party and it was a great hit, and I was asked to make it again for next weekend's surprise party.

07/06/2006

I made this super easy to make cake for Canada Day and everyone absolutely loved it. I even got complimented for being so "artistic".

07/06/2006

Delicious, easy to make and a real delight to serve on Canada Day weekend! Thanks!!!

07/06/2006

A fabulous addition to our Canada Day BBQ! Very light and fresh - was great b/c we had an extremely hot day! Everybody loved it - would make again in a heartbeat.

07/06/2006

Easy to make, looks great & tastes delish! I make it every year.

07/06/2006

The Canada flag was very easy to make and very good my family enjoyed it very much

07/06/2006

This recipe is a family favourite for BBQ's on Canada Day. It is super easy and everyone loves it. I lighten it up by using Jello Light and Ultra Low Fat Cool Whip, so it is a treat that everyone can enjoy. The flag is tricky, but not too difficult. I'm also going to try the same recipe, using other Jello and fruit combinations.

07/06/2006

I have had this recipe for a few years but had not tried it. My daughter, son-in-law and two grandchildren were coming for the weekend and the older child who is five is Canada Day crazy. I made the cake. At first, when I poured in the jello, I thought I'd ruined it but let it set up and kept going. My local Safeway had no pound cake so I substituted an angel food cake, cutting it up and packing it into the pan. It turned out great and will be a "keeper" from now on. Thanks for making me look good! barby

07/06/2006

Everyone was so impressed with this cake on Canada Day. We had a big BBQ and this cake was the perfect, light dessert to end it!

07/06/2006

This recipe is fun and easy to make! It tastes so good too! It was a big hit!

07/06/2006

07/06/2006

After seeing this recipe over the years and never making it I decided to try it this year and was glad I did. Fun, easy to make and a hit with the adults and kids at the BBQ!

07/06/2006

I made the cake for my family and friends for Canada Day and everyone loved it. It was very easy and I will make it every Canada Day form now on. Thanks for the great receipe.

07/06/2006

07/05/2006

I had guests from Italy and they loved it! They all had seconds. Made half the cake without the jello portion and both halves were a hit! I would definitely make this again and not just for Canada Day!

07/05/2006

I made this cake for Canada Day and it was a big hit. It is so light and fluffy!!

07/05/2006

its a brilliant design and unique. I loved it.

07/05/2006

I've made this cake for a few years now, and it's always a success. My American relatives have modified it with raspberries and blueberries, and my Italian friends have used strawberries and kiwis. It's a fun, easy, and creative cake!

07/05/2006

I made this for the first time and it was a huge hit with the kids and adults. Very easy to make and very tasty!!

07/05/2006

Super easy and delicious! A real show stopper too! I would make it again.

07/05/2006

I made this for Canada day. The grandkids all thought it was cool. Very easy to make.

07/05/2006

Always a big hit at our July 1st celebration.

07/05/2006

great potluck dessert, especially enjoyed by the kids

07/05/2006

07/05/2006

was a big hit,everyone said it not only looked great,it tasted great,so,no left overs. I made a little change,I added sliced strawberries on top of the cake,it was de-luxe.

07/05/2006

Very great idea and easy to make. Only problem was I could not get a pound cake anywhere. So I used a two layer round sponge cake and put some dream whip and strawberries in between them as well. Had some difficulty with the flag as the cake was round not square. Better luck next time. Liked the idea with the jello mix; was surprised how it all came together. Served it at my first barbeque on July 1st celebration. JP

07/05/2006

my grandchildren and I made this cake, for the canada day holiday.. they loved it and had fun with me doing the flag..it went over well just like our fireworks..thanks for a great looking and tasting cake.

07/05/2006

Very easy to make and is a nice light dessert. It was a real hit at our house.

07/05/2006

It was absolutly delicious and so easy to make.

07/05/2006

a great idea, our kids loved it thx

07/05/2006

I made this cake last weekend for Canada Day and it was a big hit at the BBQ. Not too sweet and it was easy to make.

07/05/2006

Not only was the cake a hit for the Canada Day Weekend but it was also my husbands birthday and it went over really well. Very easy to make and very yummy!!!

07/05/2006

I made this cake for Canada this year. It was an awesome light dessert. It was perfect for a crowd and everybody loved it. Great tasting too!

07/05/2006

it was good but the cool whip wasnt very good. i much prefered it with real whipped cream.

07/05/2006

EASY TO MAKE AND ALWAYS A BIG HIT!

07/05/2006

My family loved this "cake". Light and delicious. Unfortunately, I had to tell them it was a maple leaf in the centre, but they said they believed me!

07/05/2006

Everyone loved it. I have made at least 6 copies of the recipe to hand out.

07/05/2006

It's very easy and very good. Everytime I make this my husband eats it all and begs me to make more

07/05/2006

It was easy to prepare and everyone enjoyed it and wanted more.

07/05/2006

I have been making this cake for years. It is fast, easy and tastes as good as it looks. I have added a vanilla pudding made with less milk to the cool whip topping to stretch a cake to make it larger. Just use more of everything else and you can make this as big or as small as you want it. Another good reason this cake is so good.

07/05/2006

I made this cke for the Legion Spaghetti Supper on Canada Day. But I used a vanilla cake mix and I received many great compliments. It was the first cake to go first. Fabulous dessert. Thank you.

07/05/2006

It's like a trifle. Easy to make with a light and refreshing taste. Looks great!

07/05/2006

The cake was easy to make. I had trouble with the maple leaf - yours looks much better than mine did. However, eventhough my family did not recognize the flag, they did love the cake.

07/05/2006

This turned out just like the picture, and my family loved it.

07/05/2006

I did make this cake for July 1st celebration.Easy and done in no time. My family really enjoyed it. Could not find pound cake at the store so I cut up angel cake instead. Will do it again for sure. Thanks!

07/05/2006

It was a beautiful presentation. Taste was excellent.

07/05/2006

07/05/2006

I've made this a couple of times and it was a big success. Hey, nothing says "Canadian" like a strawberry flag cake! Definitely a "keeper" recipe!

07/05/2006

I found this cake about 5 years ago, the recipe was written inside the shape of a maple leaf which became my template for the strawberries. It's always a hit and tastes so good you forget that it's low in calories too - bonus!

07/05/2006

This recipe was great. Everyone at our BBQ loved this cake, it was light after a heavy meal.

07/05/2006

I made my own lemony white cake to go underneath. This cake went over very well with my family!

07/05/2006

My son David (9) and I made the cake for Canada Day. We had fun making it together. My older son Steven perfected the maple leaf for us. It was easy to make and tasted great!

07/04/2006

07/04/2006

It was a hit with the family and guests. It was delicious and light tasting. Easy to make, didn't have to pull out my mixer or blender. Simple ingredients.

07/04/2006

07/04/2006

This is the 2nd year in a row I've made the Candian Flag cake and once again got rave reviews. One of the ladies in my office became a Canadian citizen on July 1st so on our first day back to the office I came in with the Canadian Flag cake (with my own variation). Instead of using pound cake I used a lemon cake mix for the bottom layer. I work in a doctor's office and we shared the cake with patients. Everyone gave it a big "thumbs up" and said how delicious it was and how clever the design, but I did give Kraft the credit for it. My co-worker was thrilled with her surprise. It tastes delicious and is truly easy to make. Rita

07/04/2006

I used this recipe last year. Thanks for reminding again this year. As with all your recipes it was excellent. Don.

07/04/2006

A very easy and tasty cake! Nice for dessert after a tasty barbecue! Our grandsons loved it!!

07/04/2006

easy to make and tastes great. good crowd pleaser

07/04/2006

I made this delicious cake for the frist time and every one just loved it,thanks for the recipe.

07/04/2006

This recipe was a huge hit with the whole family! It's a lovely light treat, with real patriotic flare. Easy to put together, and loads of "wow" factor. I didn't use the template, but I'm sure it would make it even simpler.

07/04/2006

We had company for Canada Day and the Canadian Flag Cake was an absolute hit. The cake was so delicious and yet it wasn't overly sweet. I will be making this receipe every year for Canada Day. Thank you Kraft Canada for supplying this recipe.

07/04/2006

I made it for our family get together. They all loved it. It was fun and easy to make.

07/04/2006

06/28/2006

AWESOME cake. Easy to prepare, absolutely delicious. Nice light dessert. I took pictures, I was so excited about it.

07/04/2006

The hit of the week @my local Legion where 10 members enjoyed a peice on Canada Day. I passed on the recipe to 4 ladies of which 1 lady made the cake

07/04/2006

07/04/2006

Loved the ease of the recipe and the look on the company's face when they saw it....Im sure they thought I spent hours on it. Thanks for the recipe , it was AWESOME !!!!

07/04/2006

The cake was great! But the leaves on my maple leaf left much to be desired :P. But! as soon as I put the cake down and turned my back the cake was gone. Everyone loved it.

07/04/2006

made the Canadian Flag cake for Canada Day and it was a huge success and it was so easy to make, I thought I would have problems arranging the flag part but that was easy as well, can't wait to make it again!

07/04/2006

First found this receipe several years ago and it's been a family favourite ever since. It's easy to make and it's the perfect way to top of Canada Day!

07/04/2006

It was a big "hit" at my Canada Day BBQ...however I had a bit of trouble trying to create the leaf..hehehe! There wasn't any leftovers with this cake!

07/04/2006

Awesome! Made this for the restaurant for Canada Day and it was gone within minutes- should have made 2 or 3! Easy simple and delicious.

07/04/2006

I made this recipe using light cool whip and light strawberry jello. It's a nice cool light treat following our hot day out in the sun celebrating Canada's Birthday!

07/04/2006

Hi. I made this recipe last year for Canada Day and took it to a pool party. It was easy to put together and was a big hit. I would give it 4 stars.

07/04/2006

It went over very well at my barbeque. Especially the kids loved it. It was nice because it is a light desert. It was so easy to make as well. I definately will make it again

07/04/2006

Fast, easy and absolutely delicious. Just the right touch after a good dinner!

07/04/2006

I was away so did not make this cake, but certainly plan to soon as I have company coming from out of town. It looks great and I am sure tastes delicious.

07/04/2006

This was a great dessert. I made it for my annual Canada Day bbq and it turned out great. It was fast and simple to make and i liked that I could make it the night before. I just put the cut strawberries on top in the morning!

07/04/2006

I made this at work for the children I look after. It was a huge hit! I printed off the recipe but forgot to take it to work so had to wing it a bit. It looked and tasted great anyway. Thanks for putting the WOW back in Canada Day Eh!!

07/04/2006

I did not make the Canada Flag Cake this year. I had gotten the recipe last year (I can't recall where) and had made it for Canada Day 2005 and believe it was enjoyed by my guests. This year, for a change, I made the "Simply Sensational Strawberry Shortcake" shown on Page 11 of the Summer 2006 "What's Cooking" magasine, and again, my guests seemed to enjoy it. They certainly commented on how pretty it was and I, personally, thought it was very good and easy to make. You can send more of these type of recipes my way any time! I enjoy all your e-mails and a couple of my friends were so interested that they wanted to know how to register so I advised them accordingly.

07/04/2006

Very light and refreshing. My husband gave it 2 thumbs up.

07/04/2006

The cake was a big hit at our second annual Canada Day Celebration at our home in Australia. Easy, tasty and looks great!

07/04/2006

It was so easy and lots of fun to make. It was the centerpiece of the dessert table. Thanks for the great recipe.

07/04/2006

WE MADE IT LAST YEAR FOR OUR FAMILY GATHERING & IT WAS A BIG HIT .WE ARE PLANNING TO DO IT AGAIN THIS YEAR.

07/04/2006

I make this every year for Canada Day. Love it, love it, love it!

07/04/2006

A big hit !!! Quick and easy to prepare.

07/04/2006

Made this Last July 1, and will make it again. It was enjoyed by all. B.F.

07/04/2006

I found this easy and so very good, I'm gonna make it more

07/04/2006

I did not make the cake but my daughter did and our whole family loved, she made it with raspberries, very tasty.

07/04/2006

This was easy and simple to make.The kids enjoyed making it as much as eating it.

07/04/2006

07/04/2006

This cake is really yummy. I made it for a family bbq and everyone approved! Next time I would layer more cake and less jello. Prep time is definitely more than 15 minutes.

07/04/2006

First saw this recipe 3 years ago in one of your emailed recipes. Made the Canada Cake and had great success with it. Everyone loved not only the taste but thought it really added something to the Canada Day event. The following year I made the American flag cake that you posted. My daughter was going to a 4th of July event in the States and asked if I would make her a couple to bring with her to the event. According to her everyone thought it was really neat and it was a big hit.

07/04/2006

It was very easy to make and everyone loved it. I took it to work, and everyone talked about it. And they thought I couldn't bake.

07/04/2006

This cake was so easy!! I had barely started it, when my 12 year old daughter (who doesn't like to cook or bake) came over and took over!! It was easy enough for her to complete on her own. The only thing I had to do was arrange the strawberries on top!

07/04/2006

I couldn't find a pound cake so I used a white vanilla cake mix. VERY DELISH!! Lots of compliments. Everyone was very impressed with the presentation of the cake.

07/04/2006

This flag cake was a great hit in our house. Everyone loved the taste and it is easy to prepare.

07/04/2006

Really impressed our guests on Canada Day. Passed the recipe along to them. Thanks.

07/04/2006

Very good tasting dessert. This was a crowd pleaser.

07/04/2006

I have made the Canadian Flag "Cake" for family gatherings, everyone loves it.

07/04/2006

Huge success at our Canada Dat party. I used a sliced up angel food cake for the base - only because I had one on hand. I am going to make it again, only with pudding instead of jello. Sort of like a trifle. I can change the decorating once I have the white topping on the top. Like Mixed berries or whatever fruit is in season. I think this recipe is easily adapted to all kinds of ideas! Let your imagination run wild! How could it be used at any other time of the year?

07/04/2006

THE CAKE WAS A HUGE SUCCESS AT THE PARTY OVER THE LONG WEEKEND! EVERYONE ENJOYED IT. WILL BE MAKING THIS ONE YEARLY.

07/04/2006

this canada day cake is so fun to make, i have been making it at our family cottage for about the last 5 or 6 years and it is always a hit.

07/04/2006

I loved this recipie. Well almost. I didn't follow the directions exactly. I just made a rectangular cake and frosted it! Still did the strawberries! EVERYBODY loved it! Everyone was shocked. Awesome recipie, even with variations!

07/04/2006

Excellent! Prepared it in a tupperware container and took it to our Canada Picnic at the beach. Travelled perfectly and was a nice cool dessert after a hot day on the beach. Everyone raved about it!

07/04/2006

Easy and Cute.....

07/04/2006

I LOVE THIS CAKE!!!! It was not to hard to make!!! I took it to a canada day BBQ and people were scared to cut into the cake, but once they did it was a big hit!!!

07/04/2006

easy to make everyone loved it

07/04/2006

Very impressive presentation with very little effort. Would definately make it again.

07/04/2006

I thought it tasted really good but I don't like mushy things. My family loved it.

07/04/2006

excellent dessert but we think we will make it next time with an angel food cake as we found the pound cake a bit too heavy

07/04/2006

Perfect for a July 1st holiday weekend at the cottage. The children loved the taste and the look. It is a lovely light dessert, tasty yet fairly ow in calories and fat

07/04/2006

Was good, but make sure that you let the Jello thicken significantly before pouring it onto the cake because if you don't it will rise to the top. Also, put the berries on right before serving or else they will run and your cake will not look nice after.

07/04/2006

I am not a whiz in the kitchen, but I put this together in no time and it was a big hit with the family. A light and tasty dessert.

07/04/2006

Everyone really enjoyed this dessert, and it was great fun to make. I made my own pound cake which turned out very nice as well. The Maple Leaf pattern to download was very helpful. thank you.

07/04/2006

Very good.Would make for other occasions using different pattern & different fruits in season.

07/04/2006

This is the best cake ever!!! It has pride and yummyness all in one! My family and I have made this cake for Canada day for the past few years! Always the best!!!

07/04/2006

I like the cake but wasn't very good the next day. It was a great dessert and everyone that was at our BBQ loved it. They even wanted the recipe.

07/04/2006

I made this recipe last month for a co-worker who had been sworn in as a Canadian citizen.It was a big hit and many people asked where I bought the cake. Thanks for a great idea.

07/04/2006

A friend made this cake and it was just so good! One piece just wasn't enough.

07/04/2006

I made the "Cake" for a Canada Day party two years ago and it was a great success. This year I attended a Canada Day get-together and this was our dessert - delicious and so easy to make! A 'must add' to our rec ipe boxes!

07/04/2006

I tried the cake last July 1rst. It was a huge success. I didn't have all the ingredients but it tasted great anyway.

07/04/2006

Easy to make Nothing to bake Beautiful to look at Delicious to eat

07/04/2006

It was easy to make and so deliciously cool and refreshing to eat on the hot, muggy July 1 here in Montreal.

07/04/2006

Made this for Canada Day barbeque party. Easy to make, and everyone (kids & adults) loved it. No leftovers! Will defintitely make again. Maybe with orange jello, etc for Hallowe'en, or green for St. Patrick's Day

07/04/2006

Everyone loved it. I made it with vanilla pudding instead of jello, it was delicious.Making it will pudding made it even faster.

07/04/2006

An absolute hit once again.It was devoured!!

07/04/2006

I've made this cake for our family Canada Party for the past several years. As always it it well received! With several American family members now, I make a U.S. flag version(using blue berries and strawberries) too. Happy 4th of July to our American Friends!

07/04/2006

There's no doubt about it, this cake is superb! The jello soaked into the pound cake for a spongy texture, but not mushy. The maple leaf template was really helpful when putting the strawberries on too. The instructions were so-so, because the jello didn't thicken as fast as the recipe said it would. Also, I only let the jello set for 1-2 hours, and it was still fine. Despite the minor setback, everyone I served it to was pleased and came back for second helpings. All in all, this makes for easy preparation and yummy cake

07/04/2006

I didn't have any pound cake, so I used ladyfingers instead. Everyone raved about the cake!! I'll definately make it again next year.

07/04/2006

This always disappears within a few minutes whenever I make it. The hardest part about it is waiting until the jell-o has set before everyone can eat it!

07/04/2006

I could not find a pound cake at the store, so I made my own (the day before). Assembly was a snap. It is so light tasting - A great way to jazz up strawberries! I can't wait for raspberry season! Think of the possibilities!

07/04/2006

Made the Canada Flag Cake for a neighbourghood BBQ on July1. What a hit! After 3 helpings, a 10 yr old neighbour insisted it was the best cake he had ever had. I used real cream, whipped with a little sugar and vanilla, since my grocery store was "out" of Cool Whip.

07/04/2006

Easy, pleasing and refreshing in the hot summer days....Janet

07/04/2006

what a great cake! Next time I'll make the slices of cake a bit thicker (it was hard to serve) but it definitely made the Canada Day crowd smile and I had fun making it.

07/04/2006

Everyone loved this cake!! It was light and cool and a perfect ending for our Canada Day meal. I will definitely be making this again!! Debra

07/04/2006

It was wonderful! We had our annual Canada Day Street Party! There were also several birthdays so rather than having the traditional heavy birthday cakes, the Canadian Flag Cake was served. There was not a morsel left! My rating is AWESOME!

07/04/2006

I tried this recipe and everybody loved it. Ifound it very easy to make and it was a very light dessert. Awesome!

07/04/2006

I've used this cake recipe ever since it came out. Every Year for Canada Day, I make it, and every year it never fails to evoke pleasurable comments from our guests. They (and we) love the colours, the pattern and the shape. I do believe we'll be wowing them each and every Canada Day, as we meet and greet old and new friends.

07/04/2006

Very easy to make; everyone at work loved the fact it was light and refreshing for a hot summer day.

07/04/2006

I made this dessert last year for a Canada Day pool party.I changed the recipe by using graham wafer crumbs for the bottom and chocolate pudding for the centre. I was invited to the same party this year and was asked to bring it once again. I guess it has become a Canada Day tradition.

07/04/2006

It did receive decent reviews from guests but most of the adults said that the Jello made the cake soggy, and should be put on the bottom or not at all.

07/04/2006

Kids loved it. The taste and the look were great. It had a light flavour and was not too sweet. It was still great the next day.

07/04/2006

This cake was easy to do pretty to look at and taste wonderful. Everyone raved about it.

07/04/2006

07/04/2006

This "cake" was amazing. I am not very good in the kitchen at all. It was simple and easy to make and I surprised everyone in my family with this, it was a showstopper.

07/04/2006

The only problem with the cake, or should I say with me I should have made 2 because most of our company wanted seconds and there was not enough cake. I will know better next time.

07/04/2006

I really appreciated the template for the maple leaf for the center of the cake. My family enjoyed it.

07/04/2006

WE love strawberries, but still we can watch our weight,,,but it was hard....Good for (you bet)

07/04/2006

So good and so easy to make it was a big hit at our Canada day party! I will definitely make it again!

07/04/2006

I have made this cake for a number of years-not only for Canada Day but for a quick light dessert, instead of using a pound cake I will use a Lemon cake mix, then use a lemon jello or a orange cake mix and use a orange jello etc.people rave about it and can't believe it's a no fuss dessert.

07/04/2006

Excellent way to celebrate Canada Day. Very popular with all ages.

07/04/2006

Super easy recipe and the hit of the Party!!

07/04/2006

Big hit with young and old alike! Impressive to look at, and yummy to taste!

07/04/2006

I've made this same kind of flag cake before for Canada Day but this year I followed the Kraft recipe and the kids loved it even more!!!

07/04/2006

This recipe was easy and delicious! It was a nice light dessert and everyone really loved it. It was perfect for Canada Day!

07/04/2006

Quick and easy to make. Be selective about the pound cake you use...I found the one I choose had a texture I didn't like with the jello. Kids and adults had seconds!

07/04/2006

I did not make this recipe. I did get inspired by it to make a strawberry trifle with the maple leaf on top. I used this photo to make the leaf. My family and our guest REALLY enjoyed it and were impressed with it's decoration.

07/04/2006

I used the receipe for the Canadian Flag Cake but used real wip cream with the strawberries and it was a great hit with everone and some of the neighobors who I make some for

07/04/2006

This was a lovely, cool, easy to make dessert for a hot July day. I made it with my 4 1/2 year old grandaughter since she's so into "Oh Canada"

07/04/2006

Anyone who knows me, know that I cook but do not bake.Make a dessert never! I made this cake for a Canada Day Party, and what a hit. What a easy cake to make. I will make a lot more desserts if they are this easy. May I also let you know that I love Kraft. I have made many recipes from your book and emails. Thank you very much.

07/04/2006

The kids just loved it, very easy to make. Friends and family thought it was such a good idea. Will definately make it again it was so good!

07/04/2006

I made the cake for the second year and my family and freinds just love it and thought I spent hours making it. It taste's good with a homemade cake as well.

07/04/2006

This cake was a big hit at our family BBQ. The kids absolutely loved it!!! It was very easy to make. Everyone is hounding me for the recipe!!

07/04/2006

wow easy and delicious

07/04/2006

it was a great hit at my family Canada Day BBQ. I will certainly make it again & I will be more willing to experiment now that I know how easy it is. Thanks for the great idea.

07/04/2006

Nice light, no-bake dessert for the summer months! The family LOVED it!

07/04/2006

Wow!!This cake was so easy and fast instead of the strawberries I used fresh raspberries from my garden looked beautiful and tasted wonderful

07/04/2006

My 2 grandchildren, 6 and 4 helped make this and loved every bit. We used chocolate and golden pound cake tasted great. Very easy

07/04/2006

Fun and easy to make. Kids ate it up!

07/04/2006

Easy, delicious, and impressive! My Maple leaf wasn't as good as the picture, but my guests didn't know that!

07/04/2006

Made it for Canada Day, enjoyed by all. Needless to say, it didn't last long

07/04/2006

I made this cake over the weekend and I was shocked at how easy it was. Not to mention everyone speechless when they ate it! I will be trying the same idea for different holidays and seasons. Very very yummy!

07/04/2006

I have been making the canada day cake for three years since it came out in the what's cooking booklet, it's been a hit at our cottage every year.

07/04/2006

We made the cnaada cake for our residents at the long term facility at Mundare. they loved it and were very proud to share it with thier families.

07/04/2006

This was my 3rd year making this cake. I used homemade pound cake this year which I made a day ahead. Last year I used angel food cake and it was great too!! Thanks for the yearly family tradition, the neighbors always get a piece too!!

07/04/2006

It was easy to make. A great time saver and tasted delicious. It was a hit at my families Canada Day celebration. Everyone loved it.

07/04/2006

Everybody loved this cake and they want to know when is the next Canada Day so that we can have it again.Very simple to make and very delicious.

07/04/2006

very good

07/04/2006

I had a little trouble tracing the maple leaf. I am not sure if it was because I used low-fat Cool Whip - it was too soft for the outline, so I just placed the strawbs free-hand. It tasted great though. It would also be good with any fruit in season with appropriate coloured jello. Eg. peaches with peach or orangle jello. Even got a compliment out of my brother-in-law! Would definitely make it again.

07/04/2006

This was such an easy recipe and my family, especially my five year old grandson loved it. I would use it again for many occasions, not just Canada Day, and just change the design and berries if necessary. Thanks for sending the recipe.

07/04/2006

It was quite easy to make and tasted very light. I was surprised the jello didn't run into the cake and make it mushy.

07/04/2006

This is a wonderful recipe, everyone loved it. Fast, easy, yummy and fabulous looking what more could you ask for. I will make this every year from now on. I have even planned a few variations for other holidays.

07/04/2006

07/04/2006

This was a huge hit with our camping group on the July 1st long weekend. The added bonus was that no cooking was required and there was lots of time to play while it chilled. Everyone requested it be made for the next trip.

07/04/2006

Wow!! I can't belive this was so easy to make, light and delicous, and it really looks like the Canadian flag! I used raspberry jell-o since I didn't have strawberry, but it still tasted great. I am going to start making this every Canada D"eh" :)

07/04/2006

Excellent recipe!!

07/04/2006

Very yummy, but my attempt at the maple leaf was laughable. I really liked it because it is easy and inexpensive to make and as a student that is key.

07/04/2006

I served this after our Canada Day Brunch. It was a big hit. One tip--not easy to find a pound cake at this time of year. I made my own white cake. A bit more work but the outcome was delicious. Ev

07/04/2006

This is a great recipe for a family gathering and it was just delicious. Although I am no artist I did try to trace a Canadian Flag as suggested but when I saw that it had no resemblance to the Flag I just put all the Strawberies on top and it was great.

07/03/2006

07/02/2006

I made this cake using a white cake mix baked in a 9" x 13" pan. When the cake was warm from the oven, I spread a large jar of strawberry jam over the top then let it cool completely. I topped it with the Cool Whip and strawberries as shown. It was delicious and so simple.

07/02/2006
