This homemade frosting is so simple Only 5 Ingredients

  • 4 ounces full-fat cream cheese softened to room temperature
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter softened to room temperature
  • cups confectioners’ sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • a pinch of salt

Homemade whipped cream.

  • 1/2 cup cold heavy cream (the colder the better)
  •  2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.


  • The first step is to bake your red velvet cupcakes. These cupcakes are simple to make. In 30 minutes you'll be enjoying them. Let them cool completely to make these trifle cups. My recommendation is to bake the cake ahead of time enjoy those and use leftovers for this recipe. You can definitely use store-bought cupcakes.

let's prepare the frosting:

  • Using a handheld mixer on high speed, mix the cream cheese and butter together until smooth and creamy. Add confectioners' sugar, vanilla extract, salt, and mix until well combined.
  • Use immediately or cover tightly and chill in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours.

Let's prepare the whipped cream.

  • Whip the heavy cream, sugar, and vanilla together at medium-high speed.
  • Use immediately or cover tightly and chill in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours.

After the cupcakes are ready, the process of assembly is so so simple.

  • In a medium bowl, toss together the berries, rinse and set aside.
  • Take the cupcakes and crumb them into bite sizes pieces, and set them aside.

Now that all the layer ingredients are ready, let's assemble the cups:

  • Layer the glass with red velvet cake, cream cheese frosting, whipped cream, and berries. Depending on your tastes, one layer of cake, one layer of cream cheese, fresh berries, and one layer of whipped cream can be used. There are no rules for assembling this delightful dessert; have fun with it.
