Liqueur. So I drizzled me some Amaretto on the cake pieces.
This final masterpiece made its debut following dinner on the Fourth. Throw 19 eaters in the mix, and whoosh, it was gone baby gone.
Red, (Off) White and Blue Berry Trifle
1 recipe pound cake
Amaretto or other liqueur, to taste
3 recipes pastry cream
1 pound strawberries, sliced
1 pint blueberries
Cut cake into approximately 1-square-inch cubes. Arrange cake pieces in the bottom of a trifle bowl, covering most of the surface in a single layer. Drizzle liqueur over cake.
Spread about 1/3 of pastry cream on cake+liqueur and then sprinkle with half of strawberries.
Repeat cake, liqueur and pastry cream layers and sprinkle with half of blueberries.
Repeat again cake, liqueur and pastry cream layers and then sprinkle with remaining strawberries and the blueberries.
Refrigerate for several hours for flavors to meld. Serve cold.
