  • 1 cup (250mL) 2% milk
  • 1 1/4 cups (300mL) granulated sugar

Spread evenly over the cooled cake. Arrange the sliced strawberries in the shape of the Canada flag on top of the cake. Reserve in the refrigerator until ready to serve (or up to 2 days.) Serve with additional strawberries (if desired).
