Left-Over Birthday Cake Trifle

Left-Over Birthday Cake Trifle
My kids are four years, and one day, apart. For the past three years my daughter has been on the scene, we have had joint birthday parties. I thought this would be the year they would want to separate them, but they both were adamant it was most fun to celebrate together. So, we had a Pokemon and Princess Party with a houseful of 7-year-old boys and 3-year-old girls! {Doesn't that sound fun?!}

The highlight was my mother-in-law's amazing cakes! Together, these cakes and their bases were equivalent to the volume of about five cakes! While there were a lot of kids running around our house that day, there was no way they could polish off that much cake in one go.

My mother-in-law -- who made intricate cakes like this each year for each of her six children -- wisely suggested I freeze the left-over cake for a future trifle. I had never made a trifle before, but it is something I have enjoyed many times at her house. She assured me it was easy, and she was right!

Three months later, the mood for a trifle struck me. I looked in my pantry and freezer for other yummy things to layer with the frozen cake and this is what I came up with, but there could be many variations of this easy dessert.

Left-Over Birthday Cake Trifle

Layer the following:
  • Cubes of frozen chocolate birthday cake
  • 1 box of instant chocolate pudding
  • 1 small jar of marshmallow creme
  • Another layer of cubed cake
  • Frozen mixed berries (boiled with a Tbsp. of honey and a little water and cooled) 
  • Another box of instant chocolate pudding
  • Half a tub of whipped topping  
  • Refrigerate and enjoy!
Even after we made this gigantic dessert that could have served 20 people, I STILL HAVE LEFT-OVER BIRTHDAY CAKE IN MY FREEZER! Looks like I have another trifle in my future {or maybe I'll be adventurous and try some of these other left-over cake ideas I pinned.}
