  • Glass Trifle Bowl


  • 12 ounces butter pound cake
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 2 cups fresh strawberries, green removed and cut into quarters
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 7 ounces marshmallow creme
  • 8 ounces whipped topping (optional)


  • Begin the recipe by cleaning the 2 cups blueberries and 2 cups strawberries. Cut each strawberry into quarters and set aside. 
  • Cut the 12 ounces pound cake into small cubed pieces and set aside. 
  • Using a mixer, add the 8 ounces cream cheese and mix until smooth. Add the 7 ounces marshmallow cream and continue mixing until fully combined. Set aside. 
  • Start building the berry trifle in a glass trifle bowl, begin with half the cut-up cake, topped by half the prepared strawberries and blueberries.
  • Top the berries with half of the sweet cream and spread in an even layer. Repeat the layers with the other half of the cake, berries and cream
  • Lastly, top the sweet cream with the 8 ounces of whipped topping in an even layer. Serve immediately or place into the refrigerator until ready to serve and enjoy!
  • Store covered in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.


  • The butter pound cake can be substitute with angel food cake in the same unit of measure. 
  • The whipped topping layer is optional but completely worth adding. You can use regular whipped topping, sugar-free, or fat-free if you prefer. 
  • The recipe is made with strawberries and blueberries, but you can also use raspberries or blackberries if you would like. 
  • Allow the cream cheese to soften at room temperature before mixing, it combines better and is easier to mix with the marshmallow creme.
