How to make a 4th of July Trifle with poundcake

There really is no right or wrong way to do this; however, I do recommend using real whipped cream because it tends to maintain the pretty peaks longer. Also, I cut all my stars ahead of time and then compiled it right before serving (if you make this in advance, the whipped cream starts looking “melty” pretty quickly!

Note: I used a family sized loaf from Sara Lee, but you could also use 2 smaller loaves.
