I love to create special dishes and desserts for the holidays. I have made an Uncle Sam cake in the past for a 4th of July party, but I wanted to make something patriotic with fresh fruit.
I thought a patriotic trifle would be fun. You can make the trifle in a big trifle bowl, but I don't have one of those and I wanted individual portions for my family. I just used one of our smaller glass cups.
Patriotic Trifle Recipe:
- Angel Food Cake Mix (although you can use any white cake)
- Whipped Cream (or Cool Whip)
- Fresh Strawberries
- Fresh Blueberries
Make the angel food cake. Once it has cooled, cut it into the shape of the glass and place at the bottom. Then layer with whipped cream and fresh fruit to make a fun patriotic dessert.
We all agreed that it was delicious, and my 8 year old is especially obsessed with getting more trifle!
