Ingredients

1 box red velvet cake mix, about 18 ounces (if you can't find red velvet cake use 1 box chocolate cake plus a bottle of red food coloring)

1 (16-ounce) tub whipped topping

2 pints blueberries

1 pint strawberries, tops removed

Directions

  1. Bake the red velvet cake mix according to package directions and allow to cool.
  2. Using a serrated knife cut the red velvet cake into 1-inch square pieces and line the bottom of the trifle bowl with half of the cake squares.
  3. Using a spatula, spread about a 2-inch layer of whipped topping on top of the cake squares.
  4. Layer about 1 1/2 pints of the blueberries on top of whipped topping.
  5. Layer the remaining cake pieces on top of the blueberries forming a second layer of cake.
  6. Using a spatula, spread remaining whipped topping over the cakes pieces.
  7. Decorate the perimeter with the strawberries; placing the strawberries cut side down. Sprinkle the remaining blueberries on top of the trifle inside the strawberry perimeter.
