Strawberry Shortcake Trifle

When life gives you crumbled cake, make Strawberry Shortcake Trifle! This was originally supposed to be a Strawberry Shortcake Birthday Cake, but when the cakes stubbornly stuck to my baking pans and fell apart I went to bed and decided to start over in the morning… 😭 While my second attempt at baking the birthday cake was in the oven I decided to turn my first cakes into a trifle. So glad I did!

“Many of life’s failures are people who didn’t realize how close they were to success when they gave up!”

It was an unplanned addition to the birthday party menu but the fresh berries, strawberry sauce, and a delicious homemade whipped cream perfectly disguised my flop of a cake and it was such a hit!

Strawberry Shortcake Trifle Recipe

Vanilla or Yellow Cake

Use recipe of your choice. Mine was simply boxed cake mix.

Strawberry Sauce

  • 1lb strawberries, pureed
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Puree strawberries in blender. Add the strawberry puree, sugar and vanilla to saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Boil for one minute, remove from heat and set aside to cool while you make the whipped cream.

Homemade Whipped Cream

  • 3 cups heavy whipping cream, cold
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tbs vanilla

Place mixing bowl in freezer for a few minutes till it’s cold. Add the heavy whipping cream, powdered sugar and vanilla to the bowl and beat on high speed until stiff peaks form.

Assemble Strawberry Shortcake Trifle

Place half of cake pieces in bottom of trifle bowl, covered with chopped strawberries and then half of the strawberry sauce, followed by half of the whipped cream. Repeat with one more layer of each and then top with extra chopped strawberries to decorate the top.

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
