I could see myself buying some store bought cake and covering it as follows:

Blueberries or similar boiled in water and sugar until it get's thick but is still filled with fruit.
Similar stripe with strawberries
A stripe of good cream cheese based frosting (that stuff can survive nicely outdoors if it has a high enough sugar content, instantly dehidrating all bacteria and inhibiting spoilage).

I just made the coolest cupcakes - red, white, and blue.

I took a white cake - broke it up in 3rds. 1 was died red, 1 was died blue, and the other left white. I layered red, white, & blue in the cups and baked.

Then I took cream cheese frosting and did red and blue and frosted the cupcakes red, white, & blue and put red/blue sugar crystals on top.

They are so cute! I'll post pictures as soon as I take them. Yes, it is dying a cake but the layered red, white, and blue is cute.
