When I have the time, I like to try a new take on a common recipe. Take carrot cake, for example. The treat is really good as is. But when it’s prepared as a Carrot Cake Trifle, it’s even better! Imagine layers of fluffy white cream cheese filling between the scrumptious cake.

As you can tell from these recipes, I am all about the carrot cake:

Carrot and Pineapple Cake

Doesn’t a trifle dessert just look so fancy? And it doesn’t take much longer to prepare than traditional carrot cake. It’s just layering the ingredients rather than icing the cake and being finished. This single serve mixed berry trifle recipe is another favorite of mine.

I mean, really, take a look at these pictures and tell me this wouldn’t be a hit with your family and friends!

As for the garnish, I highly recommend pineapples or raisins, since their sweetness complement the spice of the carrot cake well!
