  • Bake a blueberry cake. I'm sure you can find a recipe on google. Then decorate the top like a flag with blueberries raspberries and icing/whipped cream.

  • Blueberry jello cake- make a white (or yellow cake) let it cool, poke holes in it with a toothpick. or fork. Mix up a package of blueberry jello and pour over the cooled cake. Chill, spread cool whip over the top and decorate with your fresh blueberries.

    Or maybe break up an angel food cake in a bowl, add blueberries (and strawberries if you want to make it patriotic) mix up some instant vanilla pudding, layer in a bowl and chill...top with whipped cream

  • use the blueberries to make pie, put on the side for angel food cake, make jam for bread, make cookies with them instead of chocolate chips, have to put over ice cream, make blueberry smoothies, make parifie cups with the berries along with spongecake and cool whip. can also pull up on the computer blueberry recipes.

  • pies cakes over ice cream; over angel food cake; in cookies; smoothies; parfaits; use them in jello; in pudding; make jam; and if all else fails you can freeze some and use them at a later date

  • If you want to be all kitchy and retro, there's always the flag cake:
