Strawberry Shortcake Trifle {4th of July Special}

Strawberry Shortcake Trifle #4thofjuly #easydessert

Wow! So, it has definitely been a while, well actually just a week since my last post but it feels like forever! We just got back from a 2 week Hawaii trip with my husbands family for his parents 35 year Anniversary! We all had a blast, 11 days on Maui and 2 days on Oahu equals awesomeness but also a very tired family. I feel like I am just now recovering sleep wise.

Even though we had an awesome time and I SOOOO didn’t want to leave the beloved Islands I couldn’t wait to get back home and start cooking again. We had some amazing food while in Hawaii and you will definitely be seeing some Hawaiian inspired dishes soon. But today, it is all about “Strawberry Shortcake!” Strawberry Shortcake is one of my all time favorite desserts. It is so easy to make and you never feel stuffed afterwards because most of the components are light. Major Bonus! This Strawberry Shortcake recipe is a little different, I turned it into a trifle and added some blackberries to give it a little July 4th flare. So there you have it a Red, White, & Blue Trifle with a Strawberry Shortcake base. You’re gonna love it!

To get started, cut up one premade angel food bundt cake into 1″ cubes. {purchase angel food bundt cake in bakery section at local grocery store}.

Next, hull {cut the top off} 16oz. of strawberries and then cut into 1/4″ slices.

Make sure 1 pint of blackberries are clean and ready to use.  It is is time for assembly.  In a large Trifle bowl or large glass bowl, line the bottom with 1/3 of the cubed angel food cake until you can no longer see the bottom. This is your first layer.

Next layer, spread 1/3 of a 16 oz. container of cool whip to completely cover the angel food cake layer.
