Raspberry Cheesecake Trifle (Gluten Free)

READY IN: 24hrs 30mins
Recipe by zepharum

A decadent dessert that looks and tastes far more complicated than it really is. Use your favorite white cake recipe or use a mix. I recommend Kinnikinnick's White Cake Mix. Try to keep your layers distinctly separate and the results are beautiful! I wouldn't recommend using low fat cream cheese, it's just not the same! Make sure you use frozen berries, not fresh as you require the juice from the thawed berries.

This is my new favorite dessert! I made it using a Betty Crocker Gluten Free yellow cake mix and it was still heavenly.
