4th of July Picnic Cake

We made this cake for our family reunion .
It was very easy and everyone seemed to enjoy it!
Here is the recipe:

You Need:
1 baked white cake (9x13) cooled completely
1 8 oz. cool whip
1 pkg. strawberry jello
1 c. very hot water
1/2 c. cold water
12-20 strawberries (depending on the size and how many "stripes" you want)
1 c. blueberries

With a large fork poke holes in the cake every 1/2 inch or so. Combine the jello and the hot water until the jello is dissolved, add the cold water and stir. Carefully pour the jello mixture over the cake so that it runs down into the holes (the cake will have red stripes when cut). Chill the cake for several hours to let the jello set. When ready spread cake with cool whip. Remove tops on strawberries and cut in half the long way. Make the rectangle of blueberries first, then add the strawberry stripes. Chill until ready to serve!
