If you're looking for a quick July 4th recipe to whip up for memorial day weekend before your guests show up to celebrate, this patriotic icebox cake is perfect for you. This sweet treat requires minimal prep and ties in beautifully with a 4th of July theme.

To make this recipe begins by whipping up a standard red velvet cake mix. Instead of baking the cake in a cake tin, spread the batter thinly across a cookie sheet so the cake bakes in an ultra thin layer. Then stack the thin red velvet cake layers together using a cream cheese-infused whipped cream. Place the cake in the freezer and pull it out when you're ready to serve it. Add some blueberries to replicate the red, white and blue color scheme of the American flag.
