Easy Strawberry Charlotte Parfait

This week-end we finally had some warm sunny weather to enjoy.  It always puts me in the best of moods and makes me excited for dinners on the patio with friends and family.

I want to spend time soaking up the sun and not in the kitchen so I’m always looking for ways to impress without lots of work.  And by work I mean making a whole Strawberry Charlotte from scratch.   That involves a whole lot of steps that I just don’t have time for right now.

Cause I’m busy soaking up the sun with some very posh and important people…

My family….

Remember these parfaits that I made here and here?  Well geesh, I received a whole bunch of messages about what an easy entertaining idea that was.

I’m here for you!

You’re welcome.

The best part about this dessert is that I didn’t have to do any baking  before hand.  You know what I do that I think is just brilliant?  I mean, sometimes I really do have good idea’s that I swear I should receive some sort of award for.  I save all of my cake scraps.

That’s right, you heard it here.  Right out of the horse’s mouth.

After I layer any cake I put the scrap piece or the extra layer in the freezer for later use.  It works wonders when you need to throw together a quick trifle or something.  For these parfaits I used a layer from my Hot Milk Cake recipe.  I used the parfait cup as my cutting tool and cut two pieces for each cup.  Then I layered it with an easy Bavarian Cream recipe that just uses pudding and cream cheese.  And berries.  Voila.

Now back to that patio.  Enjoy!
