Easy and Delicious Red White and Blue Patriotic Trifle Recipe

Red White Blue Patriotic Trifle

Before we know it, July 4th with be here! I am getting really excited for the 4th, I love to watch Fireworks. Our town puts on a pretty good show. We live in a smaller town so it isn’t anything like you would see in a big city, but it is pretty darn good to me!

I thought it would be fun to share a 4th of July Inspired recipe to get ready for the holiday. This Red White Blue Patriotic Trifle is so cute and really tasty. The recipe below is for homemade cake but if you don’t feel like making it from scratch, you can buy a boxed white cake and mix it accordingly, and then just separate the colors  once batter is well mixed.

This is a really easy dessert that doesn’t take much time, and is super cute. I hope you enjoy!

This recipe makes about 8 Mini Trifle , but you are welcome to do one big one! This recipe will work for individual trifles or one big one!  To make the mini trifles, I love these mini trifle footed bowls. They are just the right size! Now let’s get on with how to create this delicious masterpiece!

Patriotic Mini Trifle Ingredients ­

1 C. sugar
1⁄2 C. butter, softened
3 egg whites
1 1⁄2 C. flour
2 tsp. Baking powder
1⁄2 C. milk
2 tsp. Vanilla
1 can of whipped cream (I used Reddi­Wip)
blue food coloring
red food coloring
maraschino cherries for topping (optional)

Directions ­

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
1. Combine the sugar, butter, vanilla, milk and eggs and mix well. Stir in flour and baking
powder. Mix well.
2. Separate the batter into thirds, leaving one bowl white. In the second bowl add 3 to ­4 drops of red
food coloring. In the third bowl add 3­ to 4 drops of blue food coloring. **You may want to add a few
more drops depending on how ‘bright’ you want your batter to be.
3. Pour each batter separately into (3) greased and floured 9×9 or 8×8 baking pans and bake 15 to ­20
minutes. Test the cakes with a toothpick and if it comes out clean they are cooked through.
4. Remove the cakes from the oven and let cool. Remove from the pans and lay on wax paper.
5. Using a knife or a fork cut the cakes into small chunks.
Assemble Trifles
Now once cake is cooked and cooled, it is time to start layering the trifles ­
– Layer 1: Red cake chunks
– Layer 2: Whipped cream
– Layer 3: White cake chunks
– Layer 4: Whipped cream
– Layer 5: Blue cake chunks
– Top Layer: Whipped cream with a cherry on top (optional)
 

I suggest serving immediately. I do not recommend saving (the whipped cream melts quickly). If you have any cake leftover you can save that in an airtight container up to 1 week.

This easy red, white and blue patriotic trifle recipe combines layers of cake with whipped cream for a delicious and pretty dessert that is perfect for the 4th of July, Memorial Day or any summer holiday!

Let Freedom Ring 4th of July Inspired Sign Silhouette Craft

With 4th of July right around the corner I thought it would be fun to make a cute 4th of July Inspired Sign to decorate with using the Sketch Pens from Silhouette! I used the pen to write the words on the paper, then cut out some blue and red stars to add to it! I think it turned out pretty good. I had black and white pens, they do have lots of colors to choose from though in the Sketch Pens!

Silhouette Sketch Pen Using the Sketch Pens in my Silhouette Cameo was really easy! All you do is remove the blade, and replace it with one of the sketch pens. It fits right in, and only takes a second to pop in. Then just pick out a design you want, I used the “Let Freedom Ring” Design ID #61940  in the Silhouette Store.

Then once you get your design the size you want it, you just select the Silhouette Sketch Pen for the cut setting, and replace your blade with choice of pen. Then click start and it will begin to create your design! It is super easy to do, and doesn’t take any more effort then cutting a design!

With the pens I will say depending on the paper, will determine how well it works. I had a red and blue card stock paper that had a little bit of lines on it, the sketch pens didn’t show up very well on them, so using these pens it is best if you use flat plain paper.

SHOP: 

Now through July 5th you can head over to silhouetteamerica.com and score 30% off everything! I really love my Silhouette Cameo, it can do so much, and it makes crafting fun and really easy! If you own a Silhouette Machine you can even buy accessories like vinyl, sketch paper, sketch pens, and much more!
