Patriotic Naked Cake Just in Time For July 4th


  • Blue Velvet Cake Mix
  • Whip Cream
  • Fresh Strawberries
  • Blue Crystal Sprinkles (optional)


  1. In mini bundt pans, cook the blue velvet cake as directed. If you don’t have mini bundt pans, you can always use a full-size cupcake pan. After baking, allow your cakes to cool for ten minutes before removing from the pan.
  2. After removing from the pan, allow your cakes to cool for thirty minutes before adding the toppings. Once cool, add a generous dollop of whip cream.
  3. To fan your strawberries, make cuts the length of the strawberry about ¼” inch apart. Once all of your cuts are made, hold the strawberry at the top, between your thumb and forefinger, and press out with your thumb to make the strawberry fan. Place on top of the dollop of whip cream.
