For dessert I made this delicious trifle. I chose simple and just used a box cake mix. It's super simple and really pretty.
Red, White and Blue Trifle:
1 box of white cake mix (i like Duncan Hines)
8 oz. cream cheese softened
1/3 c. sugar
1 c. heavy whipping cream
3 c. strawberries, washed, hulled and cut in half, dried
2 c. bluberries, washed and dried
1 c. raspberries, washed and dried
Make the cake according to box directions. When cake is cooled cut into bite size pieces.
Combine berries together in a large bowl.
In another bowl cream the cream cheese with the mixer and gradually add the 1/3 c. of sugar. Blend well until the mixtures gets a bit airy. Slowly add the heavy cream and mix until the mixture is light and fluffy.
Put a layer of cake in the bottom of the trifle bowl. Spread half of the whipped cream over the cake. Place half the berries over the whipped cream. Repeat the layers. Chilling it for a couple hours makes it even better.
Have a wonderful 4th!
