Rainbow Trifles

My daughters had some friends over and I made these cute and colorful trifles for their dessert.  I made each girl their own individual trifle in a clear plastic cup, but you could easily make a bigger one in a regular trifle bowl.  They were a big hit, really yummy, and not quite as time consuming as the Rainbow Cupcakes I made last year.

Here's what you need:  

NOTE: This made enough for 10 individual trifles in the clear plastic tumbler cups (with a little bit of cake leftover).  Just adjust up or down if you need more or less.  Oh, and I just used box cake mix and instant pudding.  If you're a "from scratch" person, feel free to use your favorite recipe.

  • two boxes of white cake mix (plus ingredients to make it)
  • two boxes of instant pudding (plus milk to make it)
  • food coloring
  • whipped cream (optional, but a nice touch)

Here's what to do:

Color your cake batter red, yellow and blue.
Color your pudding orange, green and purple.

5.  Bake your red, yellow and blue cakes.  (I used rectangular bread pans, but any pan would work.)

6.  Allow cakes to cool.  Trim off the very outer layers of the cake to expose the brighter colors underneath, then cut into cubes.

It's not burnt, but it's not as vibrant as the inside.

7.  Begin to layer your trifle.  Because my purple pudding had a slight brownish tint (since the pudding itself was yellow), I stuck the purple on the bottom.

8.  Continue layering... pudding, cake, pudding, cake, until your rainbow is complete!

That's it!  It's really quite easy and looks so pretty and colorful.  (Plus, I always feel kind of fancy serving a trifle!)

Oh, and here's a quick picture of the happy trifle eaters.  Most were already halfway finished before I could even snap the photo!

  12. Yummoooooo! So cute! I would love for you to link up at my party going on now! I hope to see you and your rainbow trifles there! :)


  13. Question... Would it work to color the batter purple & the pudding yellow to stop the purple from looking brown when mixed?

    1. Good question! I considered doing that, but I wanted the rainbow colors to alternate between cake and pudding. I was afraid if I switched and did the pudding red, yellow and blue, the red and blue would end up looking orange-ish and green-ish, know what I mean? As it was, the purple didn't look terrible, I just didn't want it on the top where it would be really noticeable.

  14. Love this - so cheerful!

  15. Yum! I love rainbows, cake and pudding, so this is perfect.

  16. Wonderful creative idea!! TY for the great instructions and can't wait to make.

  33. As mothers and daughters, we are connected with one another. My mother is the bones of my spine, keeping me straight and true. She is my blood, making sure it runs rich and strong. She is the beating of my heart. I cannot now imagine a life without her.Happy Mother's Day Images Happy Mother's Day Images Happy mother's Day Poems Mother's Day Pics

  34. Thank God for our Mothers
    If life were without water, where would we be?
    If life were without mothers,
    There would be no you or me.
    We all need to take hold, of how precious life really is,
    and not take for granted the gift of love and the ability to give.
    Thank you to God for creating us all
    For giving us our mothers
    So we can stand proud and tall.
    Humans are no accident, no mistake or error
    We sometimes live our lives in fear of this,
    Even to the point of terror.
    But when the truth is told, and recognised by all,
    God does not create rubbish. He knew what he was doing when he created
    me and you, but the best gift of all, is giving us loving, caring
    Mothers who love us unconditionally through and through.
    None of us are perfect, that includes ourselves and family.
    Hold onto how precious we are and thank God for our mothers.

  61. Using a selling site like where you can enter your registration and a few other details and get a bike valuation in a matter of hours. You can then even sell the bike to them, simplifying the process massively.
    If you want to do it yourself, you could try looking for second-hand bikes similar to yours and seeing what other sellers are asking for. This won’t give you a completely accurate price but it could help you to find a good starting point.
