Pumpkin Patch Trifle

Pumpkin Patch Trifle


What a way to re-purpose a Pumpkin Bread!

Now I’m sure not many of you will have an extra pumpkin bread laying around, since once you bake it, it will be devoured instantly!

But for those who bake pumpkin breads in multiples (like me!) You may have an extra one to spare!

If not – well….GET BAKING!

The Pumpkin Patch Trifle idea is as adorable as it is delicious and can be a really fun treat for an after school pick me up!

Layered with fresh vanilla custard laced with brown sugar & pecans!!

Crushed Oreo Cookies for the dirt patch and Brach’s Candy Corn Pumpkin Candies for the pumpkin!

Add a bit of green buttercream vines and leaves and you have yourself a fast easy treat for any occasion!

I’m thinking how cute these would be for the Thanksgiving dessert buffet table!
