Patriotic Trifle Directions:

If you chose to make the cake then you will need to start by preparing the cake and letting it cool. If you have store bought then move on to the making the pudding {follow directions on box}. Next, cut your strawberries. Once all of your ingredients are ready you can start layering the trifle bowl.

I always begin with the cake because it creates a nice base for the trifle and makes it easier to cut and serve. I like to just break the cake up and fill the bottom of the trifle bowl, but you can cut large pieces too. Then, add the layers to the trifle. If you want this to look more like a flag you can hold off on the blueberries and only put them on the top of the trifle.

  • Layer of Cake
  • Layer of Vanilla Pudding
  • Layer of Cool Whip
  • Layer of Strawberries
  • Layer of Cake
  • Layer of Vanilla Pudding
  • Layer of Cool Whip
  • Layer of Blueberries
  • Repeat {if needed}
