The classic strawberry-and-blueberry flag cake never gets old – we’re partial to Ina Garten’s version that is equally beautiful and delicious. But if you’re inclined to think more outside-the-box this 4th of July while still serving up patriotic pride, here are some new flag-shaped creations to whip up for your celebration.

Show your pride in the Stars and Stripes with this no-peel version of classic deviled eggs.
