4th of July Red, White, and Blue Trifle

Here is a super simple and beautiful idea for a 4th picnic.

1 white cake mix
1 large tub of whipped topping
Fresh raspberries or strawberries
Fresh blueberries

Follow your box directions in mixing the white cake mix.  Cut the batter in half by placing in two bowls.  Add red food coloring to one and blue to the other half. 

Pour the batter into two 8 x 8 inch greased baking dishes.  Follow the baking instructions on the cake mix box.

Once your cake has cooled completely, cut the red and blue cakes into 1 inch squares.

To assemble the trifle take 1/2 of the blue cubes and place them in the bottom of your trifle bowl.  Top with whipped topping.  Repeat the layers, adding half of the red cake, 1/3 of the whipped topping, the second half of the blue cake, and top with the remaining filling, etc.  

Top the trifle with sliced strawberries and blueberries, and serve!  You may wish to also sprinkle berries in between layers if you have plenty of berries.  

I'm going to share just a few 4th picnic ideas tomorrow and the 4th.  

Hoping you have a great day, be happy and may God bless you and yours.
