Looking for a light, refreshing dessert? Look no further! This Lemon Trifle is all that! It is easy to make, tastes amazing and is a total crowd-pleaser. I have made a lot of different desserts for parties at work, and this is the most requested for me to make again and again.
This dessert does not take a lot of skill, because you are just layering it into a bowl. The best part about it is you can improvise, and it is not an exact science like a cake.
This dessert travels well, if you have a bowl with a lid, but can also look beautiful in a glass dish. Either way you have an absolutely tasty dessert!
I made this cake this week for my very good friend Robyn who turned 40!! She wanted to make her calories count on her birthday and this is the dessert she chose to use them on! That is saying a great deal – It’s that good!!
Here is what you need:
Pieces of Cake – I baked a yellow cake in two 8″ rounds. You can also use store bought angel food cake and just cut it up. Either way its delicious!
Two boxes of lemon pudding, prepared as stated on the package
Two 8oz containers of whipped topping. Any kind you like; fat free, low fat, extra creamy…any will do!
1 box of Lemon Oreos – crushed!
How to assemble your trifle:
In a bowl layer on pieces of cake
Mix one tub of whipped topping into your lemon pudding mix. Spread some of that on top of the cake
Next spread on some of the whipped topping from the other container
Top with some of the crushed Oreos
Repeat until the ingredients are gone
You will want to end with Oreos on top so it looks finished!
I hope you enjoy this trifle! Make sure to subscribe to Fun and Frosted for more recipes!!
How fun is a Harry Potter Birthday Cake?!! My son is turning eight and he wanted a Harry Potter Birthday Cake! We love Harry Potter we have just finished watching all of the movies with the kids. We even have a dog named Gryffindor!
Besides actually frosting the cake with white, piping the details was easy. For some reason I find it more challenging to get a smooth frosted cake, with out any hiccups. I always find that the frosting pulls up and starts to rip the cake…just being honest here. We definitely had to do some frosting “surgery” on one of the corners.
I like to make things as easy as I can when making cakes. So, yes I used cake from a box… I mixed together Rainbow chip and Cherry Chip. Yes it tasted good, in fact, it tasted really good! I had some dad’s at the party ask me what flavor cake it was, because it was that good!
What Size Cake?
I opted to make a little bit of a smaller cake than I normally do; 15×21. Two boxes of cake mix did the trick and I baked it for about 30 minutes. Definitely check it when the timer goes off because every oven bakes differently.
Colors I Used For The Details
For the details, I used Wilton Buttercup Yellow and Burgundy for the colors. For the black, I bought pre-mixed black in a tube and put it into a piping bag. It’s difficult to get a good black frosting! I had to put a lot of burgundy food coloring in to make it not look like a pinky rose. For the lettering, I Googled “Harry Potter Font” to get the shape of the letters as accurate as I could! See below for my video on how I decorated it!
I hope you enjoy this!! Follow me on Fun and Frosted for more Fun!!
