12 in 12 Challenge: Recipe 5 - Strawberry Trifle

The final recipe, for the moment, is the dessert my mom and I put together for Mother's Day (yes, she made her own Mother's Day dessert - we worked on it together since we had never made one of these before).
This recipe is from my cousin, who got it from her aunt. :)

Strawberry Trifle

1-8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 large cool whip (12 oz.)
Red food coloring
1 Angel food cake (we used 2 loafs of cake)
Sliced strawberries

Mix cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk until smooth. Add cool whip and mix well. Add a few drops of red food coloring and mix well.

Layer in large trifle bowl (we got 3 layers):

Angel food cake (cut into 1-inch cubes)
Cream cheese mixture
Sliced strawberries

Top with cool whip (we left some out) and sliced or whole strawberries.

Want to see how pretty it can be?

We begin with little mini ones we made in plastic shot glasses just to try it out. Mini desserts in shot glasses seems to be a current trend, so we wanted to see what it was like to make them ourselves.

And a side view. Our only regret is that there is too much for the four of us, so we wish we had help eating it!

  1. It did make a lot, and it was good. Very pretty in the trifle bowl. The shot glasses are cute, too!
