A Great Big "OOPS" Berry Cheesecake Trifle

Well, in trying to copy a post from last year, I erased it...but like all good kitchen disasters, it deserves to be written AGAIN!

I had a mess of lemon cupcakes that stuck to my Demarle muffin trays.  Yep, that is pretty hard to do, but I managed to do it.  Since I had made a double batch {of course!} I could not bring myself to throw it all away.  I saved what I could and bagged up the mess to deal with on another time and another day, when I stopped feeling sorry for myself!

I had leftover key lime whipper filling and berries in the freezer, so I decided to make a trifle!  It was so good!!

I would not suggest making a big ol' mess, but a plain pound cake, lemon cake or white cake would be just perfect.

Sprinkle a bit of sugar over fresh or thawed frozen berries and add a bit of lemon zest.

Layer the cake on the bottom.

Pour a bit of key lime whipper filling on top and add a few berries.


I saved out a bit since I was making it to give away.  I probably skimped a bit on the key lime whipper filling because it was simply addicting!

I boxed it up in a leftover birthday gift box...and it was the easiest dessert EVER!  Not sure I would go through the trouble of digging out stuck cupcakes to make it...but then again, maybe I would!

Key Lime Whipper Filling:

1 14-oz. can of sweetened condensed milk

1 6-oz. can frozen limeade concentrate {NOT thawed}

1 cup of heavy whipping cream


*Whisk the condensed milk, limeade and heavy whipping cream in a large mixing bowl with a whisk attachment.

*Beat until fluffy and a bit stiff.

*Chill for at least 6 hours or overnight.

Happy Wednesday, ladies!
