This berry trifle is one of our favorite treats! It can be made in under five minutes, and is so easy that even kids can make it! This recipe only takes a few ingredients and it is one of our favorites to bring to parties all summer long.


What you need

Whip Cream  – if you wan to get super fancy, you can make your own. But, I’m all about cutting corners so the store bought it is! You can use cool whip or whip cream, whatever floats your boat!

Strawberries – Chop up some fresh strawberries. Dice them into small pieces so they can fit nicely in a mason jar.

Blueberries – Wash and dry

Pound Cake or Angel Food Cake- Buy a premade pound cake at your local grocery store and dice it into bite size pieces.
