Easy Lemon Dip Filling

The filling for this lemon trifle is actually a popular Living Locurto recipe! Easy Lemon Dip is light and fluffy and has just the right amount of lemon flavor. It’s mouth watering and oh so delicious!

Easy lemon trifle recipe is a simple layered dessert.

Here is what you need for these Lemon Trifles:

  • Non-fat Greek yogurt
  • Cool Whip
  • Instant lemon pudding
  • Angel food cake or pound cake
  • Fresh raspberries or strawberries
  • Lemons for garnish
  • Trifle bowl

Serve it up in a large trifle serving bowl, which not only shows off the gorgeous layers, but will also feed a large crowd.

I love making individual serving trifles for parties with mason jars, stemless wine glasses, plastic cups or mini trifle bowls pictured here.

I love making this recipe with raspberries and strawberries because the red fruit really pops along side of the yellow lemon filling. And of course they create the perfect amount of tartness with the sweet lemon filling!

Bake your own pound cake or buy one already made from your grocery store. I like to buy cake, because I usually need a homemade dessert last-minute. Use angel food cake for our lemon trifle if you want something lighter and low-carbs.

I Love Chickens

My love of chickens started when I got my first pet chickens around the age of four. Here I am with Chicken Little and Chicken Big! I was SO EXCITED! ha!

Chicken and Baby Chick Cupcakes! Cute Birthday Cake Idea - Amy Locurto with chickens

Forget the pet dog, I was all about the pet chickens. Somewhere, there are photos of me swinging and sliding down my 1970’s swing set slide holding Chicken Little. ha!

Since I can’t have chickens now, I get my chicken fix and fresh eggs by visiting my Aunt Tricia in Oklahoma and her pet chickens! We love chickens so much, we even started a new Facebook page, Chickens are Fun. If you are a chicken fan–> click here to join the fun!

Combine my love of cute party food and chickens, and you have these adorable mama chicken and baby chicken cupcakes.

I asked Pamela to create these cute treats for us and think they turned out so adorable! I love the mama chicken, but the baby chick cupcakes made from mini cupcakes are my favorite. I hope you enjoy these fun party treats!

How to Make Chicken Cupcakes and Baby Chick Cupcakes!

These cute chicken cupcakes were made for a friend who raises backyard chickens. Her chickens lay the most beautiful eggs in shades of blue, green and brown, so I asked if I could trade her some fresh eggs for cupcakes. There was of course no hesitation!

How to Make Chicken and Baby Chick Cupcakes!

Here is what you need to get started:

  • Vanilla cupcakes, regular and mini sized
  • Buttercream frosting
  • Yellow food coloring
  • Toasted coconut
  • Chocolate chips, regular and mini sized
  • Fruit chew candies (Starbursts or something similar.)

Bake a batch of regular sized cupcakes and mini cupcakes. We used a vanilla cake mix to save time, but if you want to make a fluffy white cake from scratch, try this–> white cake recipe.

After the cupcakes cool, frost your cupcakes with buttercream icing. Either make a batch of your own or buy a few cans of frosting. We used natural (non colored) vanilla colored buttercream for the regular sized cupcakes and light yellow colored frosting for the chicks. You might like this lemon frosting (it’s amazing!).

How to Decorate Chicken Cupcakes

While the frosting is “wet”, dip the sides of your cupcake into toasted coconut making sure to get all around the edges. Here is a simple tutorial on how to toast coconut yourself.
