Trifle-style desserts are some of my favorites (like this apple snickers trifle or this s’mores trifle) and this one combines two of my absolute favorite flavors!

Lemon Raspberry Trifle Jars
Prep time
Total time
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 4
  • ⅓ of an angel food cake
  • 8 oz lemon curd (or fruit filling)
  • 1-2 pints fresh raspberries
  • ½ tub Cool Whip
  • 4 small Mason Jars
  1. Use the inside circle of the mason jar lid to cut circles out of the angel food cake. 1 cylindrical section was enough for about two jars. Then, cut about ½" discs out of the cake.
  2. Press 1 disc into the bottom of the jar and top with 2 teaspoons of lemon curd/filling.
  3. Add one heaping spoonful of Cool Whip on top of the lemon. Place 4-5 raspberries on the Cool Whip.
  4. Repeat the whole process 1 more time to fill the jar.
  5. Serve immediately or cover & refrigerate.
For 4 jars, we used only about ⅓ of a standard store-bought angel food cake and about ½ the standard tub of Cool Whip.
