Blueberry Marscapone {Roulade} Trifle - French Fridays with Dorie

I think I'm a week + a day late on this recipe.  We're busy this summer and it seems like when we have a free day, I just wanna be lazy and not do too many extras.  One of my favorite lazy-day activities, so far, has been watching the Star Wars movies because my kids had never seen any of the movies and 2 of the 6 were new to me too.   I think #2 is my fave, but we still need to watch #5 & #6.

I wanted to try this recipe, but I also wanted to make it as quick & easy (& mess-free) as possible.  Instead of rolling my cake to make a roulade, I just cut my cake into bite-size pieces and turned my dessert into a trifle.  I like raspberries better than blueberries, but I decided to stick to the recipe and try the blueberries ... they were great with the recipe.  I also drizzled a tiny bit of orange juice over my cake pieces which added another flavor to the mix and sweetened the cake a little.  I walked away from my heavy cream while it was whipping, so it got a little well-done.  Kinda ugly looking, but it still tasted good.

Overall I give this recipe 4 out of 5 stars.  I didn't love the cake.  It was good, but I'd probably try this with a different cake recipe next time.

Call Me Maybe

Hope you are all enjoying a great summer!!  We're busy here with trips to the library, museums, swim team, dance classes, music camp, playing with friends, swimming several times a week, etc, etc, etc.

My 9-yr old went to a birthday party a few weeks ago.  She came home and introduced the other kids & me to Carly Rae Jepsen's song, Call Me Maybe. We're having fun listening to it around the house & in the car when we're on the go.  If you're looking for a fun, upbeat song, you can buy it right now on Amazon for $0.25!
