I needed a easy to make and preferably no bake recipe 4th of July cake and went through all the recipes I know of this sort. Couldn't find exactly what I was looking for so just winged it, lol. It came out wonderful, not too filling and went quite fast, now I have to make another 1 since that was a tester, lol.
