Cranberry Orange Trifle

For the last years I always made decorated cakes for desert, but this year my eyes fell on a delicious looking trifle, so I thought 'Why not try something else this year'. I altered the ingredients a bit to my own likes and this is the recipe that came out:

What you need

box of cake mix (plus named ingredients on the box; usually eggs and butter)

2 oranges (zest and juice)

250 grams cranberries

400 grams sugar

250cc whipped cream

250cc mascarpone

vanilla essence 

What to do

Make the cakemix as instructed on the box

Add the zest of one orange to the batter

Bake the cake according to instructions on the box

Let cool off

Squeeze the juice out of both oranges, put into a pan

Add cranberries, zest of the other orange and 400 grams sugar

Cook until cranberries are all popped, while stirring every now and then

Let cool off

Whip the cream until stiff and mix with the mascarpone

Cut the cake into squares of 3x3cm

Make layers, starting with the cake squares, then the cranberry mix, than whipped cream

Repeat once more

Decorate the last layer of whipped cream with white chocolate crumbles
