Individual Strawberry Trifles

Here's a little dessert that is absurdly easy to make and assembles in a snap. Who knew that something so simple could be this delicious and elegant??

2 pints strawberries
2-3 tbs sugar
1 Entenmann's pound cake (or other brand, or your own)
Redi Whip (or other brand, or fresh whipped cream)

Select 4 of the most picture perfect strawberries. Set aside.
Wash, hull, and slice remaining strawberries. Toss with sugar in a small mixing bowl. Set aside.
Slice pound cake. Using a glass or a cookie cutter, cut pound cake slices into rounds. Set aside.

In four large stemmed glasses, layer ingredients like this: whipped cream, one cake round, strawberries, whipped cream, another cake round, strawberries, and whipped cream on top. Garnish each trifle with one of the reserved whole strawberries.

Substitute any fresh fruit or combination of fruits for the strawberries. You could also use any kind of cake. Lemon cake with raspberries, chocolate cake with cherries, the combinations are endless. Yum!
