How to Make a Strawberry Cream Trifle
- First we’ll prepare all the individual layers of the trifle to make it easier to assemble the dessert later on. Start by decrowning your strawberries, then wash them. Pat them dry with some paper towel.
- Cut one strawberry in half, then set aside for garnish later on. Cut your strawberries into thin slices, then set them to the side for now.
- Cut out the cake layers by placing a glass on top of a slice of pound cake, then pushing it down, punching a hole in the cake. Remove the layers by wedging the handle of a spoon between the cake and the glass, and gently wedge out the cake. Repeat until you have 4 layers.
- Mix the heavy cream along with the powdered sugar until it is airy and firm peaks are starting to form.
- Place the mascarpone in a separate bowl, then add about half of the whipped cream, and the vanilla sugar to the mascarpone. Mix until the cream is light and airy.
- Now we’ll start assembling the trifle. We’ll start with a layer of cake on the bottom of the glass. Place a layer of cake in the glass, and carefully push it down to the bottom with the back of a spoon. This is why a straight glass is ideal, since you won’t have to nudge the cake into the curves of the glass.
- Then we’ll place our layer of strawberries. First assemble slices of strawberry against the side of the glass. If you use the slices from the middle of each strawberry, you should get slices that all look around the same size. Then fill up the middle of the dessert with the remaining strawberry slices.
- Scoop the vanilla mascarpone cream into a piping bag and pipe the cream into the glasses while reserving just enough space for another layer of cake on top.
- Add the second layer of cake on top op the cream and gently push it down into the glass.
- If there’s still any mascarpone cream left in the piping bag, empty it out first. Then scoop the whipped cream into it. Pipe the whipped cream onto the cake in a circular motion.
- Finish the dessert off with half a strawberry for garnish.
- It’s ready to serve! Be sure not to serve it after a heavy dinner, since this is quite a filling dessert. Enjoy!
