Raspberry 5 minute Heart Trifle RecipeHere's all you need for a quick dessert:
(Make 1 individual serving below)
Store bought pound cake or your own leftover cake

On a cutting board cut cake into 1 inch high slices of pound cake or other cake your using. Using the cookie cutter, cut out heart shaped pieces of cake as many as you need for the bottom and top. Set aside.
Add raspberry syrup, preserves or pie filling, a teaspoon at a time stirring into your vanilla pudding cup and still until pink ( I used around 1 tablespoon).
Layer starting with the cake, then raspberry flavored pudding, more cake. Top with more pudding, whipped cream. Arrange heart shaped cake along the top. Drizzle with a small teaspoon of raspberry syrup and garnish with chocolate pieces.
Very simple dessert. Of course you can adapt to any flavors using strawberries, blueberries or other syrup and preserve flavors mixed in the pudding.
