{Easy} 4th of July Berry Trifle

This elegant dessert is so light, so simple, and so delicious…perfect for a warm Spring or Summer day. The juice from the berries naturally soak into the angle food cake. The homemade whipping cream adds a special touch to this “semi-homemade” Berry Trifle. Your guests will be delighted!

Strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, whipping cream, {sugar}, 1 store purchased Angel Food Cake, a trifle bowl.

Cut strawberries and rinse all berries in a colander.

Mix berries {beautiful, aren’t they?}

Pour whipping cream into a large mixing bowl and beat on high until soft peaks form. Please know that you can over mix whipping cream and it will loose it’s creamy smooth texture.

Add 1/2 cup of sugar to whipping cream and beat for 30 seconds until combined. {Yes, you may substitute Cool Whip if you need to…but the extra 5 mins to make your own whipped cream is SO worth it in this particular dessert}.

You are ready to layer! Start by simply tearing large pieces of angel food cake apart and layering them at the bottom of your trifle bowl. Add berries, then whipping cream. Repeat 3 times.
