This colorful dessert starts with one white cake mix, made according to packaging directions.
Divide the cake into four equals parts. Next, add a drop or two of blue, red, green, and yellow food coloring. When the batter is ready it is placed into four 6 inch cake pans. (I love these mini cake pans and use them to make all kinds of great desserts.)
While the cakes cool, make the yummy filling. It’s 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 are completely cool, crumble them and place part of the crumbles into the bottom of my favorite trifle bowl. (As seen in the photo above.)
Next, place a layer of filling, another layer of crumbled cake, one more layer of filling, and a final layer of cake.
Garnish the top of the Cotton Candy Easter Trifle with colorful cotton candy, pastel-colored peanut M&M’s, and Sixlets.
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.
