As we approach the upcoming Memorial Day weekend, we remember the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. Armed Forces.  When you plan your holiday cookout menu with ribs, burgers, baked beans and potato salad, add this patriotic cake for dessert and offer thanks for those who served our country so well.

Recipe:  Grand Old Flag Cake

This is basic chocolate sheet cake recipe topped with cream cheese frosting and decorated with blueberries and raspberries.  It's easy to make and easy to take if you're providing dessert for the family cookout.  If you've got kids, let them help decorate the cake and use the opportunity to tell them some interesting facts about the United States flag.
