Red Velvet Trifles

This dish was prepared for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “air” and my secondary theme was “Love Inspired Dish”. Love Inspired and Air… whipped cream. This was actually exciting for me because I just picked up a new stand mixer and have never made my own whipped cream! By the way, these were absolutely decadent and insanely bad for you… I only ate 3 of them…. in one sitting. I am not really big on desserts but these are definitely fun to share with a loved one.

I used Marionberry  Whiskey because I live in Oregon so we have to have Marionberry everything. You could also use any fruit liquor that you have.

Also, I used cake mix because I am lazy. Shoot me. I bet it would be even better with a home made cake.

1 Red Velvet Cake Mix
Berry Filling
2 Cups Frozen Raspberries
1 Cup Fresh Raspberries
2 Tablespoons Sugar
8 Tablespoons Marionberry Whiskey
Cream Cheese Sauce
4 oz Cream Cheese
1/2 Cup Powdered Sugar
2 Tablespoons Milk
Whipped Cream
1 Cup Whipping Cream
1/4 Cup Powdered Sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract


  1. Set the Cream Cheese out to soften.
  2. Make the Red Velvet Cake per package direction for 2 layers. Set aside 1 1/2 of the layers for cake pops, freeze, or top with frosting. Keep 1/2 a layer of Cake and cut into 1/2 inch pieces or crumble.
  3. In a medium bowl, stir the Frozen Raspberries, Fresh Raspberries, Sugar, and Marionberry Whiskey. Mash the Fresh Raspberries a little bit while stirring. Set aside.
  4. In another medium bowl, whisk the softened Cream Cheese, Powdered Sugar, and Milk until smooth. Set aside.
  5. In a stand mixer, add the Whipping Cream, Powdered Sugar, and Vanilla Extract.
  6. Starting at the lowest speed, gradually increase the speed to medium high. Whip until stiff peaks form (about 2 or 3 minutes).
  7. Assemble in glasses in this order: Red Velvet Cake pieces, Berry Filling, Cream Cheese Sauce, Whipped Cream, Red Velvet Cake pieces, Berry Filling, and Whipped Cream. Refrigerate for 5 – 10 minutes to let the cake soak up the Berry Filling.
