Perfect Summer Party Dessert: Cranberry Custard Trifle

We love summer entertaining, so we couldn't wait to share this fun and festive recipe with you! This little jar is perfect for kids and adults alike, and great for outdoor entertaining. 


We made our trifle with homemade custard and tart Cranberry Coulis. The coulis is soaked into our cubes of pound cake and topped off with real cream topping. The cranberry's are the perfect summery fruit to give this dessert a bold and refreshing taste!

We decided to make our trifle's in to-go mason jars, which were perfect for outdoors, plus they are dish washer safe and BPA free!
