4th of July Trifle

Weeks ago I originally saw this recipe on Facebook, tagged my "son" the Kauffman in it (he loves having parties) and of course it came right back at me recently because he wanted me to make it & bring it to his 4th party. :-O

So I made the cake parts, not once but TWICE yesterday and whined & moaned almost the entire time... LOL!!!! Now I have it figured out and tweaked the recipe to fit ME! :-D

Buy 2 WHITE cake mixes (one will be coloring w/ red food coloring, the other blue)
One cake mix at a time add 3 eggs, 1 & 1/4 cup buttermilk and 1/3 cup veg oil
ONLY TO THE RED BATTER WILL YOU ADD 1 Tbs of unsweetened cocoa powder
(which makes a cheating version of red velvet cake)
TO THE BLUE BATTER ADD 1 tsp. of almond extract
Beat each for 2 minutes in your mixer
Bake each in a PAM sprayed 8" pan for about 45 min or until set. (your making 2 different cakes)
Cool then, cut outer edges off so you get the pretty color inside. Then cut into big chunks for layering.

1 pint of whipping cream & 1/2 cup sugar to peaks, set aside
Whip/Beat/Mix until fluffy
2 - 8 oz. pkgs of cream cheese, 1/2 cup sugar & 2 tsp. of vanilla
Then fold all together, thats your whipped layer.

blue chunks, cream, red chunks, cream, blue, red, then more cream then top with sliced strawberries & blueberries

Keep chilled :-)
