Peppermint Trifle

My recipe for a simplified

 Peppermint Trifle
 (or you can use the original recipe)

What you need:
Instant cake mix plus the ingredients mentioned on the package (normally butter, sugar and eggs).
600 grams cream cheese
100 grams peppermints, grinded to powder (if you can't find this you can use peppermint essence)
100 grams marshmallows
150 butter
Peppermint candy canes for decoration

Bake a cake with instant cake mix as indicated at the package. Add green food coloring until you think it has a nice deep green color.

For the cream between the green layers and on top:
Melt the marshmallows au bain marie. Mix with two tablespoons of water after melting. 
While the marshmallows are melting mix the cream cheese with the butter. Then add the melted marshmallows and mix until smooth. Add the peppermint powder bit by bit to your own taste. I don't like it when the peppermint taste is very dominant, I want it to be subtile. 
Now layering starts. First the cake and then the cream. After two layers stick in part of the candy canes on the sides for decoration and go on with layering. End with the cream. Decorate with the rest of the candy canes.
