Summer is officially over but fresh tasting desserts never go out of season. This recipe has been my go-to crowd pleaser and as a plus, it looks pretty fancy. This quick and easy recipe is very hands on so it’s nice to do this with kids or a group of friends. So you’re wondering, “Kat, what is this amazing recipe you are talking about?” I’ll cut to the chase.
I found this recipe during Fourth of July and quickly fell in love with it. When it comes to cake I prefer light and delicate compare to typical buttercream iced cakes. The first thing that comes to mind is trifle! This recipe calls for pound cake but I paired it with angel food cake instead, to give it more texture. So enough talking, here is the recipe!
~Mixed Berry Trifle~
- 2 cups of heavy whipping cream
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 cup cold milk
- one 3.4 oz package of vanilla pudding mix
- one Box mix of angel food cake (you can be fancy and more your own cake by scratch)
- Mixed berries (Strawberries, Blueberries, Raspberries, ect)
In a stand mixer, whip the cream until stiffed peaks form, then set aside. In a large bowl, beat the sour cream, milk and pudding until it thickens. Fold in the whipped cream and set aside.
Here is the fun part… the assembling! I used glass trifle cups but any container will work out but seeing the layer is a nice presentation. Cut cake into cubes, place first layer of cake then place berries over cake then add pudding mixture – repeat till you fill your container.
Refrigerate for 2 hours then you are all set! This is an amazingly easy way to make a fancy looking item on the cheap!
