I love my trifle dish so I use any excuse to break it out. In fact, I nominated myself to make the dessert for our 4th of July celebration at my Mom's house. I stumbled across a recipe for a festive "cake" in my Parents Magazine. They have great recipes! I, of course had to modify it so I could use my trifle dish because I think a trifle looks so grown-up. It was super easy and is really beautiful!
Angel Food Cake (baked with love from the grocery store)
16 oz strawberries
1 container of blueberries
Strawberry Ice Cream (I like Strawberries and Homemade Vanilla from Bluebell)
2 tbsp sugar
-Set your Ice Cream out because it needs to be soft
-Wash and slice your strawberries and mix them with 1 tbsp sugar. Wash your blueberries and also mix with 1 tbsp sugar and let sit for about 20 minutes.
-Take your Angel food cake and slice it right down the middle horizontally.
-Then you layer in this order:
(I had extra strawberries so I put them on top.)
-Place in the freezer and freeze for at least 2 hrs and Enjoy.
I'm off to Mom's for grilling/swimming/gaming... Happy 4th everyone!
