Everyone enjoyed this so much! Be sure to scoop a good bit of the cheese out for the salsa - the salsa bled into the cheese on me. But it really did look and taste good.

Invert cream cheese that has been flattened onto wax paper and covered with cheese?? How do you expect people to do this? The cream cheese is STUCK to the wax paper.... therefore, you can only invert it into the pan by peeling it off the sheet with your hands. This is very VERY messy and you end up taking parts of the wax paper too. As a result, I only got about 1/6th of the cream cheese off the wax paper. I started over again using my mother's traditional cheese spread recipe. I still made the "flag" with the olives and salsa. So overall the spread came out fine, once I disregarded your guy's original "spreading cre
