As we love easy summer entertaining, we couldn’t wait to share this fun and festive party dessert idea!  Create a delicious dessert in a jar for guests.  It’s perfect for adults’ and children’s hands and a must for outdoor entertaining!  We made our trifle with homemade custard and tart Cranberry Coulis.  The coulis is soaked up by cubes of buttery pound cake and the delicious dessert is topped off perfectly with real cream topping.  We chose the bold flavor of cranberries to make this dessert refreshing for summer.
