Wave your Flag Cake

To honor our service men and women:
1 qt. strawberries (about 4 cups), divided, 
1-1/2 cups boiling water, 
1 pkg. (8-serving size) JELL-O Brand Gelatin, any red flavor, 
Ice cubes, 1-cup cold water,
1 pkg. (12 oz.) pound cake, cut into 10 slices, 
1-1/3 cups blueberries, divided, 
1 tub (8 oz.) Cool Whip whipped Topping, thawed
Slice the strawberries in half & set aside. Stir boiling water into dry gelatin mix in large bowl 2 minutes until completely dissolved. Add enough ice to cold water to measure 2 cups. Add to gelatin; stir until ice is melted. Refrigerate 5 min. or until slightly thickened (consistency of unbeaten egg whites). Meanwhile, line bottom of 13x9-inch dish with cake slices. Add sliced strawberries; 1 cup of the blueberries to thickened gelatin; stir gently. Spoon over cake slices. Refrigerate four hrs. or until firm. Spread whipped topping over gelatin. Arrange strawberry halves on whipped topping for "stripes" of "flag." Arrange remaining 1/3-cup blueberries on whipped topping for "stars." Store leftover cake in refrigerator. 160 Calories per serving. Recipe received free from
