Where did the weekend go? We have been kept busy the last two weekends with music recitals and graduations. I am quite happy to say that there is nothing on the agenda for this coming weekend. Have I ever mentioned I am such a homebody. While I do love a good party, I am am equally just as happy here at home. I haven't had two minutes to stitch a thing, hence, no Let's Get Stitched post in awhile. Today I am hoping to rectify that with a session at the sewing machine this afternoon!
I want to share this trifle I have been making for over 20 years now. So easy and always a crowd pleaser. It looks quite elegant too.
1 angel food cake cut in half then cubed into 2"sections
1 16 0z tub of frozen strawberries defrosted
1 container fresh strawberries, sliced and save a large perfect one for the top garnish
whipped cream (you can use fresh which is 16 oz whipped up or cool whip 16 oz)
1/2 cup natural coconut (not too sweet)
1 oz of white chocolate shaved
In a trifle bowl put half of the cake on the bottom. Put a layer of half the strawberry mix & half fresh strawberries then half whipped cream. Sprinkle 1/4 cup of coconut and cover with 1/2 of the chocolate. Repeat this layer one more time and put that nice strawberry on the top in the middle. Refrigerate for 3- 4 hours before serving or even overnight to let the cake soak up the flavors. Yummy!
