Don’t Forget About Me…

18 May

dirt cake

…said the pretty trifle bowl in my kitchen cabinet. I was searching Pinterest one day and saw a “Dirt Cake” in a glass trifle bowl and I realized that I’ve been neglecting my trifle bowl for many months. Sad, sad times. I got mine at a wedding shower and I really do like it. I just never think to make something to put in it. So this post isn’t really to give you a new recipe. It’ just to say, don’t forget this summer to take out your trifle bowl and make something pretty to go in it. 🙂 Most recipes for this are fairly simple. I made a dirt cake, which is always a hit with the kids. I’m not going to post the recipe I used, because this was the first time I’d made it and honestly it could have used more cream cheese. But I WILL include this link I just found. It was written for Christmas time baking, but some of the trifles could be made year round. When do you NOT need a “Brownie Oreo Trifle”? 😀

July 4th will be here before you know it. If your pretty glass bowls don’t get used for anything else this summer, make a quick and easy dessert by layering some strawberries, blueberries, cubes of white cake, and whipped cream. I’m going to try to make at LEAST 3 more desserts in my pretty bowl this summer. 🙂
