Come 4th of July, lots of people have Pinterest boards dedicated to flag cakes.

If you’re a regular Betty Crocker, by all means, go for it (and invite us over for a slice and sparklers, please).

But for many people, baking and decorating elaborate cakes is a little too time consuming (or above their kitchen skill level).

If that’s the case, these “pies” are a great substitute. All you have to do to whip them up is a little bit of stirring and layering. Use the time you saved to jump in the pool again or practice your “oohs” and “aahs” for the fireworks.
