I hope you are having a wonderful Canada Day! I know Chris and I are. We have a day full of car washing, dessert eating, and park walking planned…yes I lead a very exciting life indeed. Although, as of right now it’s raining and kind of damp outside. Whatever, I still maintain it’s a great day!
So to celebrate the birth date of the great nation we live in, I decided to create a cake pudding dessert. So my house smells pretty amazing right now.
Here’s what you’ll need:
1 boxed white cake
3 drops of Red Velvet Emulsion or Red Food Colouring
2 cups of blueberries
2 1/2 cups of sliced strawberries
4 pudding mixes (i used 2 vanilla and 2 banana, you’ll also need milk for the pudding)
1 can of whipped cream
- Mix the boxed cake as according to the instructions o the box. Now take 1/2 cup of the cake batter and place it in a separate bowl. Add the Red Velvet Emulsion to the separated cake batter and mix it together.
- Pour the white cake batter into a 9 x 13 inch baking pan. Now marble in the red cake batter. I used a knife to create the marble look.
- Bake the cake according to the box.
- When the cake is baked, remove from oven and let cool.
- Once cooled, remove from the pan and cut into cubes. The cake will be on the softer side. I’ll let you in on a little trick, if you put the cake into the freezer for 15-20 minutes it’ll make it easier to get cleaner cuts.
- Mix the puddings in separate bowls. Place them in the fridge for 15 – 20 minutes, or until set
- Now use your best parring knife and slice the strawberries.
- Time for assembly! Banana pudding on the bottom, then add a layer of blueberries, then a layer of strawberries, add a few cubes of cake and then add a layer of vanilla pudding.
- Keep doing that until you fill your dessert bowl.
- Now add a layer of whipped cream and top with a beautiful maple leaf made of strawberries….or just layer strawberries on top
This didn’t take me long to make at all and it’s been a BIG hit with my family! I hope you enjoy your Canada Day!
