Red White and Blue Triffle


  • 1 box red velvet cake mix, about 18 ounces (if you can’t find red velvet cake use 1 box chocolate cake plus a bottle of red food coloring)
  • 1 (16-ounce) tub whipped topping
  • 2 pints blueberries
  • 1 pint strawberries, tops removed


Bake the red velvet cake mix according to package directions and allow to cool.

Using a serrated knife cut the red velvet cake into 1 inch square pieces and line the bottom of the trifle bowl with half of the cake squares.

Using a spatula, spread about a 2-inch layer of whipped topping on top of the cake squares.

Layer about 1 1/2 pints of the blueberries on top of whipped topping.

Layer the remaining cake pieces on top of the blueberries forming a second layer of cake.

Using a spatula, spread remaining whipped topping over the cakes pieces.

Decorate the perimeter with the strawberries; placing the strawberries cut side down. Sprinkle the remaining blueberries on top of the trifle inside the strawberry perimeter.

*I have made this recipe before with my aunt sharon but we used angel food cake instead of red velvet cake. The triffle is very easy to make and it looks amazing. You can cut the fruit ahead of time and assemble in minutes right before the party or event to keep the cake from getting too soggy.
