Ingredients

  • 1 Red Velvet cake mix plus eggs, oil and water that mix requires
  • 2 - 8 oz pkgs. cream cheese softened to room temperature
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 2-3 cups blueberries
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 1 cup strawberries halved

Instructions

  • Make cake according to package directions, baking in two 9-inch round pans. Make sure to grease the pans well so that the cakes will come out easily! Let cakes cool completely before assembling the trifle.
  • To make the whipped cream filling, beat the cream cheese and sugar with an electric mixer until smooth (about 2 minutes). Add the vanilla and whipping cream and continue to mix for another 2-3 minutes.
  • To assemble the trifle, place one round cake in a trifle dish and place half of the whipping cream mixture on top. Add most of the blueberries (saving a few for the top). Place the other cake on top of the blueberries and then add the other half of the whipping cream mixture.
  • Refrigerate until ready to serve (you can make this up to 24 hours in advance) and then top with raspberries, strawberries and remaining blueberries right before serving. Enjoy!
