This trifle is a burst of color--tropical orange, strawberry red, ocean blue, and sunny yellow fruits.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine strawberries and 1/2 cup sugar in a large bowl, tossing gently to coat. Cover; let stand at room temperature 2 hours.

Step 2

Meanwhile, beat cream cheese at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth. Add 1/2 cup preserves, 1 tablespoon sugar, and flavorings, beating until blended. Gradually add 1 cup whipping cream, beating until blended.

Step 3

Cook remaining 1/2 cup preserves in a small saucepan over medium heat 4 minutes or until melted, stirring constantly.

Step 4

Arrange one-third of pound cake cubes in a 3-quart bowl or trifle bowl. Top with one-third each of cream cheese mixture, Caramel Sauce, pineapple, blueberries, and strawberry mixture. Repeat layers twice, ending with strawberry mixture. Drizzle with melted apricot preserves. Cover and chill 3 hours. Garnish, if desired. Store in refrigerator.

Step 5

Tip: Make sure you use a 3-quart bowl. This trifle is what it says: It's bursting with ingredients and won't fit in a smaller bowl.
