Let us set the scene; it's the Friday before Memorial Day, summer is here, and your half-hearted offer of, "Let me know what I can bring!" was met with, "How about a dessert?". Don't hit the panic button just yet, we've got you covered! 

Enter this Strawberry and Cream Trifle which we developed in partnership with Driscoll's Organic Strawberries. We macerated the berries in a touch of sugar, vanilla and cardamom to enhance their natural flavor and even used the tops to make an herbaceous infused whipped cream.  

As for the cake, we made a homemade chiffon cake (because we're fancy like that!) but you could totally take a short cut and use a store-bought pound cake, or make a yellow boxed cake! Want to see us make this on FeedfeedTV live from our Brooklyn test kitchen? Click here!

For the cake:
3 cups cake flour
3 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
