I don’t think you can go wrong with a good trifle no matter where you are. The only problem we’ve ever had with them is scooping them out and making it still look pretty. But the mixture of pudding, brownies, cookies, and cream.. there is nothing we don’t love about this layered dessert. Add a little green food coloring and a hint of mint, it’s perfect for your sweet tooth.

Besides looking impressive, your guests are going to start drooling when they see the trifle in your kitchen. No matter how complicated as the trifle seemed, it’s effortless to layer your favorite ingredients together.

Tropical flavors are ones that we crave this time of year with spring on the horizon. Inspired by the tangy lime flavor and sweet frosting, these donuts will bring you one bite closer to the tropics and warm weather. While they’re not green on the outside, top with a little lime zest or green sprinkles and one bite will bring you closer to the green fruit that brings them their flavor.

Layer cakes are impressive on their own, but a green velvet cake? Everyone will be talking about it! Instead of adding the deep red to the chocolate flavored cake, green will bring a punch of color your guests didn’t expect. Cover it with cream cheese frosting and some crumbs to add some interest. We absolutely love the shamrock on top too! Tip: cut one out of the center of a piece of paper and use it as a guide to make the shape on top of your frosted cake!
