This Strawberry Cheesecake Trifle is one of those make-in-advance crowd pleasing desserts. It’s filled with sweet strawberries, cubed cake and a homemade vanilla cheesecake mousse. I literally make this year-round when I can get my hands on sweet strawberries. It’s a given it will show-up during the glorious strawberry picking season, but the colors make it perfection at Christmas, too.
To assemble this confection, I recommend starting with cubed cake, then strawberries then vanilla cheesecake mousse in that order. Depending on the size and depth of the trifle bowl used, the layers could come together differently, so consider the size of the bowl you’re using when separating the ingredients into layers. This strawberry cheesecake trifle is a fun dessert to make and serve and there’s never ever a spoonful leftover.
