I know Memorial Day is a couple weeks away but I wanted to post this trifle. I was recently asked to submit a red, white, and blue dessert for a 4th of July feature in a couple of months and this is what I came up with.
Memorial Day is not about celebration but about remembering those in the military who lost their lives for our country. Everyone has the day off so it lends its way to BBQs even though it’s not really a holiday to be “celebrated”. So if you plan to eat on Memorial Day and need a dessert why not make this.
I came up with this recipe on my own. That doesn’t happen often but hey, it’s trifle…you kind of just throw things in. I love trifles because they serve a lot of people and are better when they are made ahead of time and have had time to sit and let the flavors blend. They are so versatile; you can use angel food cake, pound cake or even your favorite flavor of regular cake. This version has pound cake, cheesecake pudding, whipped cream, strawberries, blueberries and a hint of lemon.
