the first dessert I baked for my then-fiance was red velvet cake, and he was hooked...I love to cook, and my 3 daughters are following in my footsteps. This is a collection of recipes that we love. Feel free to comment - good, bad, indifferent - if you try any, let me know how they turn out.

Raspberry Cream Trifle

From Becky (joyfulmom) on Sonlight forums - made for us by Annieruth when we stayed there a couple of years ago -

This is a delicious, light and summery dessert and is beautiful as well. If you don't have a trifle bowl, just use a large clear glass bowl so everyone can see the layers and colors.

Raspberry Cream Trifle

1 angel food cake, cut into chunks
12 oz. frozen raspberries
1/2 c. sugar
2 Tbs. corn starch
1/4 c. water
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 c. cold water
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. almond extract
1 (3.4 oz) box vanilla pudding
2 c. whipping cream, whipped (I made it using Cool Whip once, and it was fine)

Bake angel food cake according to directions on box, except you can use a 9x13 pan since you will be cutting it up. Don't grease the pan and don't move your oven rack lower or it will burn. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until top is brown and cracked. Remove from pan and let cool completely before cutting into chunks.

Mix sugar and cornstarch in sauce pan. Add water and raspberries . Stir while bringing to a boil. Set aside to cool.

In a large bowl beat sweet condensed milk, water and extracts until blended. Add pudding mix; whisk for 2 minutes. Cover and chill until partially set. Fold in whipped cream.

Place half of cake cubes in large glass serving bowl. Top with half of cream mixture, and 1/2 of berry mixture. Layer with remaining cake, cream mixture and berries. Garnish w/ chocolate curls and fresh mint leaves and a few fresh raspberries.

Can be made a day in advance. Keep refrigerated.
