Flag Cake

This is not really a recipe; it rather is a way to decorate your cake in a festive mode for the fourth of July.  This has been a tradition in my husband's family for many years.  Although we live thousands of miles away from his family, we love this tradition and continue to carry it on with our children.  Have a wonderful 4th of July, everyone, celebrating this great nation!
Ingredients:
-1 strawberry cake mix
-1 container cream cheese frosting (not the whipped kind)
-white chocolate chips
-blue food coloring
-2 jars maraschino cherries, pitted and halved
Directions:
Mix and bake cake according to package directions.  Let it cool.
Place about 4 Tbs cream cheese frosting into a bowl.  Mix a few drops of blue food coloring (to make it as blue as you want it).  Place this frosting on the top left corner of the cake.  Place the "stars", ie the white chocolate chips, on top of it.  Frost remaining cake with the rest of the cream cheese frosting.  Make some stripes out of the halved cherries. Enjoy!
Happy 4th!
