Strawberry-Blueberry Cream Trifle

Dessert tonight was simple, but oh-so-good! Chunks of cubed cake layered with real whipped cream, blueberries, and strawberries....yummy. :) Not only does it taste great, it makes an impressive presentation, too. The combination of berries made a beautiful shade of deep purple that really popped against the white of the cream. You could easily serve this as the finale to an elegant dinner!It would also be a fun alternative to a traditional birthday cake.
I am also a  firm believer in the fact that every day, even the seemingly ordinary days, are worthy to be celebrated. Every day is a special occaison, so I like to surprise my family with "fancy" treats for no particular reason other than that I love them! :)
This was the perfect thing on a cold January makes one think of summer! I assembled the layers in a large, glass bowl about two hours before serving.

Here is a picture of the finished result. (Well, the view of the top anyway!)
All you need to make this is:

1 9x9 inch (rectangular) cake, cut into medium-size cubes
4 cups sweetened whipped cream
3-4 cups berries (more or less as desired)
1/2 cup sugar

Mix the sugar and berries together and let this mixture sit for at least an hour, so that the berries can become juicy. Then, simply alternate layers of cake, whipped cream, and berries in a large bowl or trifle dish. Cover with plastic wrap and chill until ready to eat.
