How to Make Patriotic Berry Trifle

  2. Brush both sides of each slice of cake with the syrup. Cut the slices into 1-inch cubes.

Top with a layer of strawberries. Layer the remaining cake cubes on top of the strawberries, then sprinkle with more blueberries and top with the remaining cream mixture. Finish with the remaining strawberries and blueberries, arranging them in a decorative pattern. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour.
