One of my most favorite desserts to make is Berry Trifle. It is always a crowd pleaser! You can find a pretty trifle dish almost anywhere. It's most effective when it's clear glass - so everyone can see the layers. I made this one for Mother's Day!

It's best when you allow the berries to soak overnight in the Orange Liqueur mixture.

You will need:
1 pint each: strawberries, blueberries, blackberries
1/4 c. Orange juice
1/4 c. Orange liqueur, like Patron Citronge
1/4 c. Sugar in-the-raw or granulated sugar
2 loaves pound cake or angel food cake- I used
                                        pre-made strawberry angel food cake
1 package Jell-O Instant Sugar-free vanilla pudding

2 c. cold skim milk
2 c. heavy whipping cream
1/2 c. powdered sugar: more or less to taste
1 tsp vanilla extract
Sweetened cocoa powder for garnish, if desired

1. Slice strawberries and toss in large bowl. Set aside one for garnish.
2. Rinse blueberries & blackberries, then add to strawberries. Set aside a few of         each for garnish.
3. Add OJ, liqueur and sugar-in-the-raw and gently toss berries to mix. Cover and         refrigerate.
4. Meanwhile, cut off dark outsides of poundcake with a bread knife, then slice into      cubes. Set aside.
5. Prepare pudding according to package.
6. At this point, you can cover everything and assemble the next day, or continue and     put together the trifle!
7. Combine heavy whipping cream, powdered sugar and vanilla. Beat until cream         forms stiff peaks. (Use a cold metal bowl to make this process go faster!)
8. Cover bottom of trifle dish with cake cubes. Spoon berries over cubes. Next, add     pudding, then repeat until dish is nearly full.
9. Top with fresh whipped cream. Arrange berries into a pretty design. Sprinkle             sweetened cocoa powder on top.

You've just created a beautiful and easy dessert!
