Chocolate Berry Flag Cake

There is no other cake that is more quintessential for Fourth of July than this Chocolate Berry Flag Cake! I created this recipe with my friends at Organic Valley, using their Organic Heavy Whipping Cream, which is my fave! While most flag cake recipes will use vanilla cake, I use chocolate in this as I love the chocolate cake paired with fresh berries. This moist chocolate sheet cake is topped with whipped cream frosting and fresh blueberries and raspberries!

It’s not the Fourth of July without pie! This Blueberry Almond Galette is my favorite pie to date (yes of all the pies ever!).

This a great recipe to make ahead of time too, making it one of the simple Fourth of July recipes.
