    Wow, these are cool! I expected to see the usual strawberries and blueberries with cool whip or something so I was quite surprised by these recipes. With the 4th of July coming up in less than 2 weeks, this post was right on target. I think I’ll try the angel food cake recipe. Thanks! (I thought the taco salad flag was especially creative!)
