Strawberry Cake Trifle

I just made this yesterday for my dads 89th Birthday dinner.  It was a big hit.  (NO, I didn’t eat any, I did really good.  I always make more than 1 dessert, so for me and my daughter I made my Raw Banana Macadamia Coconut Dream Pie)

Strawberry Cake Trifle

1 Box – Pillsbury Strawberry Cake Mix (prepared according to package)  Or use any flavor to suit your needs or season, also pick fruit that will accompany the season.
1 Cup – Fresh Blueberries

Fresh Blueberries
Fresh Strawberries – hulled and cut up
Fresh Kiwi – skinned and cut up
1 – 8oz package Cream Cheese – softened to room temperature
2 Cups – Heavy Cream/Whipping Cream
3/4 Cup – powdered sugar – separated


Make cake according to instructions on package.  Pour batter in to 2 8″ round cake pans.  Sprinkle fresh blueberries on top.  Bake according to package directions.  Let cool.


In small mixing bowl cream the cream cheese with 1/2 cup of the powdered sugar, set aside.

In a medium bowl, whip the heavy cream until soft peaks form.  Add in the remaining powdered sugar.
Add the cream cheese mixture at 3 different intervals, don’t over mix.

Putting it all together:

Cut the 2 8″ cakes in half  horizontally.  Set aside.

Put 1 of the 8″ cake slices in the bottom of a trifle bowl.  Layer alternately with whipped cream mixture and fruit, repeat until top layer.  Top layer, use remaining whipped cream mixture, then arrange fruit.
