How to Make a Fourth of July Cake: American Flag Cake with Açaí Sorbet Recipe

We created a delicious recipe that's fun to make with the family - including our all star ingredient - Organic Açaí Frozen Berry Sorbet. And the best part of this cake? It doesn't require any baking! Just like an ice cream cake, pop it in the freezer when you're finished so it firms up and serve the delicious slices to your patriotic party go-ers. Keep reading for the dessert recipe on how to make a Fourth of July cake.


2 Pints of Organic Açaí Frozen Berry Sorbet

1 Can of Whipped Cream

1 Cup of Strawberries

1 Cup of Blueberries


  1. Slice your strawberries into thin triangle-like slices.
  2. Scoop your 2 Pints of Açaí Sorbet into the bottom of a clear rectangular pan. You can also use a cake pan if you'd like.
  3. Flatten the sorbet into a firm cake-like layer at the bottom of the pan with a spatula.
  4. Layer your sliced strawberries flat in a line in the upper right corner of your pan, stopping a little past halfway down the pan.
  5. Leave a little space between your strawberries, and start the next row by placing the raspberries pointing up. Layer these in two side by side stacks so they're as thick as the strawberry side.
  6. Then add another half row with strawberries.
  7. For the last two rows of raspberries and strawberries, layer across the entire pan.
  8. Next, layer your blueberries in lines in the empty space in the upper left corner, like the blue section of the American flag.
  9. Take your cans of whipped cream, and create lines between the rows of red berries for your white stripes.
  10. Then use the whipped cream to create little stars of white in the upper left corner with the blueberries. You could also use powdered sugar or sprinkles for the stars, instead.
  11. Layer more blueberries on top of the whipped cream on the left to make white star shapes.
  12. If needed, add more fresh berries like sliced strawberries or raspberries on top of the whipped cream to better layer your red stripes.
  13. Stick your sorbet cake into the fridge and freeze for about 30 minutes or until it's at a solid consistency.
