Summer Fruit Trifle by Where Women Cook

Looks so good!

I found this recipe on the blog Where Women Cook... They have some really tasty looking recipes and I wanted to find one that would go with the theme for Memorial Day... here it is!

Quick & Easy Summer Fruit Trifle
1 pound cake from your favorite bakery, cut in cubes or 24 mini-cupcakes
One 12-ounce jar of raspberry jam
¼ cup Chambord, Sweet Sherry, Grand Marnier, or Kirsch
Fresh Whipped Cream
2 cups heavy cream
¼ cup confectioners’ sugar
Whisk together until soft peaks form by hand or with an electric mixer.
To make the fruit filling:
4 cups fresh fruit and berries, in season
½ cup sugar
To macerate the fruit: Toss your choice of summer fruits (peaches and assorted berries, such as strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries) together with the sugar until well combined. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
To assemble the trifle: Start by making jam sandwiches with the cake (or cupcakes). Cut them in half and spread jam on one half of the cake (or cupcakes) and place the other half on top.
Place the jam sandwiches in and layer them on the bottom of the jars, or trifle bowl. Pour your liqueur of choice over the cupcakes and to soak in to the cakes. Layer with macerated fruit on top of the cake followed by whipped cream. Repeat again with fresh fruit followed by the whipped cream.  Grab a spoon and enjoy!
