A two ingredient trifle? Why, yes!

It's another one of 'those' recipes... a recipe that isn't really even a recipe and is so easy and brainless than I wonder if I should even post it. But I often have to remind myself that it isn't always about the 'recipe' but just something to jar the imagination or the memory and say "Oh yeah! I forgot about that! I should make one of those!"

And this would be one of those.

Needing a quick and easy dessert that would travel well to my parents house for Easter I baked a confetti cake. What could be more easy or transportable than a trifle?

1 cake (chocolate or white) baked according to directions and cooled
1 quart heavy cream (a little powdered sugar and vanilla or almond to flavor)

Bake the cake and while it cools whip the cream with about 1/4 c powdered sugar and vanilla to taste (about a teaspoon). Don't overbeat or you will have really sweet butter... just beat till stiff peaks form.

Cut the cake into small squares. Layer 1 layer on the bottom of a serving dish. Spoon whipped cream over and later with another layer of cake. You can sprinkle candy sprinkles between the layer if you would like! Repeat layers until all the cake and whipped cream is gone, ending with whipped cream. Sprinkle the top, chill and serve!

Cool the cake and cut to squares
