A Trifle Little Valentine

I love a good play on words. I also love dessert. And so you have my semi-homemade Valentine's Day trifle! 


This is such a fun and easy dessert to make. It's delicious and the whole family can enjoy making and eating it! Plus it's customizable - cause we should all get what we want on Valentine's Day! 

You can use whatever flavor cupcake mix you'd like. Hell, you could even buy the cupcakes from the bakery without frosting and go from there! Slice them in half; mix your whipped cream (which again, can be flavored however you like) and layered with your favorite fresh berries! Can't find fresh? A fruit jam would go great here too! Your options are just about endless! 


Remember that Valentine's Day is for everyone - a love for the ages, and love of all ages. Be inclusive and share love today - don't keep it to yourself! 

Buon Appetito!

1 1/2 C. heavy whipping cream
pinch cream of tartar
3 Tbs. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract

In a large bowl, add cream of tartar to heavy cream and beat until the cream begins to thicken. 

Add in sugar and vanilla extract and continue beating until peaks form.

Once cooled, slice cupcakes in have horizontally. Place the bottom half of the cupcake in the bottom of a cup. Add a layer of whipped cream. Followed by a layer of fresh berries. Then add the top half of the cupcake. Top with more whipped cream and fresh berries. 

Keep going until you have used up all the cupcakes, or have as many trifles as you would like. Each cupcake makes 1 trifle.
