It’s time for Valentine’s Day… booze, whipped cream, cake… ’nuff said.

I know what you’re thinking “these look like a lot of work!“. Well I’ve made a few shortcuts this time, so these Boozy Red Velvet Trifles have all the goodness, but come together in much less time. Besides, it’s a special day, so make something you can enjoy just as much as your Valentine.

Boozy-Red-Velvet-Trifles_6 Let me start by saying that even posting these photos makes me want to go and make more… so delicious! Here’s what we’re talking about:

Red velvet cake

Raspberries with liqueur

Sweetened cream cheese sauce

Whipped cream


and repeat…. total yum.

Boozy-Red-Velvet-Trifles_4 I made two huge trifles, but a person with a normal sweet tooth would probably make 4 smaller ones. I piped the whipped cream on the top (so it looked pretty), and sprinkled with dark chocolate shavings. Not too many, don’t want this to be too sweet… totally kidding… pile them on! Maybe sprinkle some inside as well!!

      Hi Celeste, it will totally be fine making ahead. You what the cake to absorb some of the liquid, that makes it a great trifle. I even had one left over in the fridge and it was still pretty great the next day!
