Everything looks more adorable when it’s tiny, don’t you think? One of my very favorite desserts has always been trifle. I love making it during the holidays. We were going on a picnic the other day and I needed to make a dessert that could be portable. I thought it would be fun to make a variation of StrawBerry shortcake but in clear plastic cups.

I made individual sized trifles with layers of — angel food cake, cheesecake filling, whipped cream and strawberries and raspberries. I added some graham cracker crumbs to top.

I found nice chinet clear cups at the grocery store and I really was looking for clear cups that had lids, but I couldn’t find lids that would fit the cups. So instead of lids, I used the press and seal cling wrap. It worked great!

I tied spoons on the outside of each of the cups with baker’s twine. The kids LOVED the dessert. And I loved that it was so easy to make them ahead of time and it was the perfect dessert for a picnic. So clean and easy to serve.

To make things even easier I bought a pre-packaged cheesecake mix. To make the cheesecake filling all you have to do is take the filling mixture and add milk to it. And to top all of the mini trifles off I sprinkled a little bit of the graham cracker crust mix which was also included in the cheesecake package.
