Easter is fast approaching and I wanted to make a really fun dessert this year for my grand-babies. Thus, I present to you Cotton Candy Easter Trifle!
This colorful dessert starts with one white cake mix, made according to packaging directions. The cake batter is divided into four equals parts with an added touch of blue, red, green and yellow food coloring. When the batter is ready it is placed into four 6-Inch x 2-Inch cake pans. I love these mini cake pans and use them to make all kinds of great desserts.
I baked the cakes and while they were cooling, I whipped up the yummy filling – a mixture of cream cheese, heavy whipped cream, powdered sugar, granulated sugar and vanilla.
Now comes the fun part! Assembling this delicious Cotton Candy Easter Trifle.
When the cakes were totally cool, I crumbled them and placed part of the crumbles into the bottom of my favorite trifle bowl.
Next, I placed a layer of filling, another layer of crumbled cake, one more layer of filling and a final layer of cake.
I garnished this Cotton Candy Easter Trifle with colorful cotton candy, pastel colored peanut M&M’s and Sixlets Easter Candies.
Last Easter I crafted Easter Egg Bunnies, so I planted one right on top of this Cotton Candy Easter Trifle. I think he adds a fun whimsical touch that my grand-babies will love! 🙂 Adding edible marshmallow chickens would be cute as well.
