One (minor) downfall to my new ‘foodie’ related job and to having my own cooking blog is that I eat ALL-THE-TIME. Now for me this really is not a problem. I love food and love to eat (and thoroughly enjoy myself when doing so). It is that when you eat the ‘variety’ of foods like I do and at the frequency that I do, this eating can cause the natural weight gain. Now fortunately since I started this food blog about 2 years ago my additional pounds have been only about 5 but they are extra pounds none the less. All that coupled with my major sweet tooth those unwanted few pounds are hard to loose. That is why I was so happy with my self when I came up with this light dessert concoction.
Airy angel food cake, naturally sweet strawberries, and a rich but light white chocolate mouse all come together for a delightfully satisfy light dessert.
Trifles are a very popular dessert (as seen and inspired from here and here and here). My version of a layered trifle dessert could be made in a large trifle bowl or punch bowl for a party or shower. But served in wine glasses like I did, make for perfect individual servings for you or to share with your honey on Valentine’s Day!
Oh and by the way Eric had no idea this was a ‘light’ dessert… All he thought was that it was ‘damn good’!
