Fruit-Tart Flag

There are so many ways of making an edible flag for the 4th of July celebration.  This a very quick and easy one.  You can make your own tart cups, but to cut down on time, go ahead and use the pre-made ones.  If you cannot find tart cups, phyllo shells work just as well.  The result is a delicious patriotic flag.  Enjoy!
Ingredients:
-40 tart cups or phyllo shells
-1 (8 oz) container mascarpone cheese
-3 Tbs powdered sugar
-1/2 cup freshly whipped cream
-24 blueberries
-about 4-5 strawberries, sliced (and each slice halved)
Directions:
If using frozen pre-made shells, let them thaw at room temperature for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, beat the mascarpone cheese with the powdered sugar.  Gently fold in the whipped cream.
Scoop the cheese mixture evenly into the cups.  Decorate with the blueberries and sliced strawberries to create starts and stripes.  Enjoy!
