Stawberry Mango Trifles

DSC08390

I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful 4th of July with family and friends. Summer has finally arrived here and I'm just loving all of the blue skies and sunshine. Life is good!

Dessert is good too...of course. This is a quick and easy...and pretty dessert that is perfect for summer get-togethers. It's especially easy to throw together last minute if you bake a couple of cakes ahead of time and stick them into your freezer. Then you just pull out your cake, cut it up and make layers of fresh fruit of your choice and fresh sweetened whipping cream. I think it looks so nice when layered in a wine or champagne glass.

Print recipe

1 13 x 9 inch vanilla cake, chilled and cut into bite sized pieces
6 fresh mangoes, diced
4 pints fresh strawberries, sliced
1/2-2/3 cup sugar
1/2 gallon heavy whipping cream
1/2-3/4 cup powdered sugar
2 tbsp vanilla extract

Place the fruit into a large bowl and toss with the sugar. With and electric mixer,whip the cream, powdered sugar and vanilla. In each wine or champagne glass layer cake, whipped cream, fruit, and more whipped cream.

We actually ended up garnishing these with a strawberry fan and they turned out just beautifully.

Hope you are enjoying your summer. :)

Those look delicious! Manggoes are one of my favorite fruits and the strawberries of course, but it's easier to get manggoes here.

Just bought a flat of peaches. They would work great in this too, I think. But do the kidzillas deserve it?????
