I want to start of this blog post by saying our thoughts and prayers are with all the people being affected by these horrible mudslides. First the fires, and then this? Sammy and I both lived in Santa Barbara for 3 years, and It’s devastating to see it in its current state, and all the other cities that are also being affected. We are thinking of you in this difficult time. On a lighter note, let’s talk Trifle Raspberry Rum Cake.
I am just over the moon about our latest trifle recipe on the blog today. Just look at how adorable they are. I mean let’s be honest, the best part about a trifle is building them, am I right? And there is something so fun about eating something sweet out of a jar. If hasn’t become clear yet, we have a thing for trifles. Check out the list below with some of the other trifles we’ve done in the past.
- S’mores Trifle
- Strawberry Limeade Trifle
- Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Trifle
- Girl Scout Cookie Pudding Trifle
- Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake Trifles
With how easy these are to throw together, they would make a perfect sweet treat to serve at a party or even just a fun dessert at your next family gathering. I swear this was not planned, but I’m going to run with it, these Trifle Raspberry Rum Cakes are totally Valentine’s Day themed!
Now that we talked about all the ways we can serve these, maybe it’s time we assess if they actually taste good or not. As your official taste tester at Blooming Bites, I can tell you with absolute certainty these Trifle Raspberry Rum Cakes are just delightful. The rum is not to overpowering, which I thought it might be. And all the flavors of raspberry, cake, rum, vanilla pudding, almonds, and whipped cream together is a flavor combination you never knew you needed in your life.
So the verdict is in, we have another winner recipe as we embark on Our Journey into the Joy of Cooking. Head over to that blog post for more information, and more delicious recipes we’ve made from the book so far. Next up on the blog we have a super fun recipe round up featuring some of our favorite bloggers cocktail recipes, and a few of our own as well! We hope you have enjoy your time with us as always, and hope you all have a great day.
