Instructions for the Blueberry Trifle:

How to Make Lemon Syrup:

In a measuring cup, combine ¼ cup water, 2 Tbsp sugar and 2 Tbsp lemon juice and stir until sugar is dissolved. Set aside until needed.

How to Make the Trifle Cream:

Beat together 1 lb cream cheese and ¾ cup sugar (with the whisk attachment) on medium speed until creamy and smooth, scraping the bowl a couple times. With mixer on, pour in 2 cups heavy cream then turn mixer to medium/high and continue beating until until whipped and fluffy. Add ½ tsp vanilla and beat until incorporated.

Assembling the Berry Trifle:

Place ⅓ of your sliced angel food cake into the bottom of your trifle dish and brush with ⅓ of your syrup. Add ⅓ of your cream and loosely spread it over cake pieces. Add ½ of the sliced strawberries. Repeat with remaining ingredients (adding ½ of the blueberries for the second fruit layer). Frost the top with last ⅓ of cream and decorate with remaining fruit.
