4th of July Trifle

Recipe by CJ Berry

Almost too pretty to eat. You'll love all the Ooo's and Ahhh's from this dessert! I received this recipe at a woman's golf tournament -- dish to pass event! Excellent!!

This was great! I did make some changes: I used low fat sour cream and cream cheese--and used a container of Cool Whip instead of the whipping cream. I also did not add sugar to the fruit, used 1 cup of powdered sugar for the filling, and left out the almond extract. Additionally, I did not mix the cake with the filling but had them as separate layers. (This is just how I am used to making trifle layers.) Next time, I will do mixed berry layers to make sure each scoop gets both types. Thanks for a great recipe!
