  • 4 ½ cup fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced

  • 1 4-serving-size package vanilla instant pudding and pie filling mix

  • 1 8 ounce package cream cheese, softened

  1. If desired, cut half of the strawberry slices into star shapes using a 1-inch star-shaped cutter; set aside. Prepare pudding mix according to package directions using the 2 cups milk; set aside. In a large mixing bowl beat cream cheese and yogurt with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Beat in pudding. Fold in whipped topping.

Arrange some of the star-shaped strawberries against the sides of the dish on top of the pudding mixture in dish, making a circle of star-shaped berries. Fill in the center with some of the uncut sliced strawberries. Top with a layer of one-third of the blueberries. Repeat layers. Top with remaining cake and pudding mixture. Arrange remaining blueberries in a 3 1/2-inch rectangle in one corner of the top. Arrange remaining strawberry stars in rows, resembling stripes on a flag.
