Happy Independence Day! If you’re looking for a treat that’s as festive as your celebration, this easy trifle is for you. There’s no cooking involved — just a little mixing, layering, and chilling — so it’s perfect for this sizzling summer weather. Whip it up in the morning, and it will be ready to go for your afternoon party. There’s nothing to it!
Sarah’s Tip of the Day:
The stars of this dessert, of course, are the fresh seasonal berries. In the video, I’ll show you how to bring out their natural juices with a little fresh orange and confectioner’s sugar (a technique called macerating). You’ll layer the berries with 10 ounces mascarpone cheese and about 24 ladyfingers, which become decadently cakelike after soaking up all the sweet fruit juices. You’ll also need an 8-inch springform pan and some parchment paper for this trifle. In the video, you’ll see how I use these to make forming and unmolding the cake a snap. So festive, so good!
