Strawberry Trifle on a Stick

Summer fair season is approaching. As in “state” fair, or “city” fair, or “small town” fair. Whatever kind of fair you have access to (and I hope you have one), you’re likely to see a whole lot of bizarre foods sold on a stick. Our local San Diego County fair always has its share of stick foods. I’m not sure how they do it, but I spied deep fried butter on a stick last year. I think I’ll stay conservative and go with corn dogs, or Smores, or anything else featured in Matt Armendariz’ new book: On a Stick.

In honor of this fun, new cookbook, I’ve put a Strawberry Trifle on a stick. It’s a simple-to-assemble recipe, and it’s perfect and colorful for summer. The short skewer alternates mint leaves, strawberries and chunks of angel food cake, and it’s served alongside a sweetened cream cheese whipped cream.

There it is- all assembled! Kids can help with this- it’s easy and fun and safe.

Some details: I purchased some fabulous mid-sized skewers at World Market. Use strawberries that are bite-sized. Leave mint leaves out if you’d like. And if you’re making these for Memorial Day or July 4th, go ahead and sprinkle some blueberries in and around your platter to make it red, white and blue.

Here’s Matt’s book, in all its fabulousness. I can just imagine the creative thought process that went into testing out various things that might work on a stick. There are photographs of every single recipe in this book. I just love it. And you’ll love it too. Check this out…

Pictured above: S’Mores on a Stick, Deep-Fried Macaroni & Cheese on a Stick, and yep… that’s Spaghetti and Meatballs you’re seeing there. Crazy, huh? That’s why this is such a great book. So different, and so unique and so creative. Congrats to Matt for putting something out there… that isn’t the same ‘ol same ‘old :) This giveaway is now closed.  Randomly selected winners are commenters # 8, 15 and 109.  Congratulations!

Strawberry Trifle on a Stick

Yield: 20 skewers

Prep Time: 25 min

Here's a fun way to serve up a strawberry trifle- on a stick!


20 mid-sized skewers
40 mint leaves
40 bite-sized chunks of pound cake or angel food cake
40 bite sized strawberries, tops cut off
1 (8 ounce) tub whipped cream cheese
1/2 cup powdered sugar, sifted

1. Assemble skewers- string mint leaf, cake cube, strawberry, another mint leaf, and then another cake cube. You can also alternate and put two strawberries and one cake cube on some of the skewers, if you'd like.

2. Prepare whipped cream- In a medium bowl, whisk together cream cheese and powdered sugar. Fold in whipped cream.

3. Serve Trifle Skewers on a platter along with a bowl of the sweetened whipped cream.

    While I love food on sticks, I have never had anything really weird on sticks… unless you consider fried candy bars on sticks weird.

    I have never eate anything unusual on a stick…but we do use them a lot in my house. I have one picky eater and if I want him to eat something I put it on a stick or let him eat it with toothpicks and it works! this would be a great cookbook for my house!

    I spent some time Friday and Saturday helping my parents, who own a catering business, make fruit kabobs and three meat & veggie kabobs on six inch bamboo sticks. I love the idea of a trifle on a stick. That may turn into a fun graduation/shower item for us to serve.

    Honestly I hope to eat something unusual on a stick though I never have. BUT I have a funny story about a corn dog. When my youngest was 4 we took him to a fair. We stopped to get some corn dogs. When he took his first bite he gasped really loud and with more enthusiasm than could ever be expected he yelled. ” THERE’S A HOT DOG IN HERE!!”

    Can’t wait to get my hands on this book so it would be super fun to win it! I recently made cereal kabobs – Rice Krispy bars, P.B. Cap’n Crunch bars, Cocoa Krispy bars, and chocolate and caramel dipped marshmallows on a stick for my 10 year old’s birthday slumber party. There’s just something about that stick that makes food double fun.

    Jeana — May 30, 2011 @ 9:26 AM

    I guess the craziest thing would have been octopus. I try to be a very adventurous eater and this was one time I wish I could have been more conservative in my choice of food for the evening. I would love to have this book though. I love doing theme parties and an entire “stick” party would be awesome. :)

  36. 36

    Shay — May 30, 2011 @ 9:28 AM

    Alligator on a stick from the French Quater in New Orleans is the oddest thing I’ve eaten on stick, although not odd for that area. The best thing I’ve ever had on a stick would be a deep fried Milky Way bar at a fair once.

  37. 37

    Amy Ramos — May 30, 2011 @ 9:37 AM

    Yum! This is perfect for berry season.
    The unusual thing I hate on a stick was fried oreos on a stick covered in powdered sugar and chocolate syrup from our local fair. My husband and I shared them and I am glad we did. They were good but you needed at least 2 glasses of milk to help wash it down.

  38. 38

    Alicia Starnes — May 30, 2011 @ 9:50 AM

    Love this idea! Great for a baby shower or bridal shower! I don’t think I’ve eaten anything strange on a stick…

    sarah — May 30, 2011 @ 10:12 AM

    nothing unusual on a stick…just the traditional marshamallows, hot dogs, corn dogs, popsicles….i would love to try some new things!

    Missy M — May 30, 2011 @ 10:55 AM

    Jen — May 30, 2011 @ 11:14 AM

    Wow this looks great, creative and delicious. I have not tried anything unusal on a stick : ( Just hot dogs but I’m so willing to try. I am going to make this for 4th of July. Thank you for the ideas. Keep um coming !

    Cyndi — May 30, 2011 @ 2:16 PM

    About the strangest thing I’ve eaten on a stick (though it’s not strange any more) is a deep fried Twinkie.

  47. 47

    Angela — May 30, 2011 @ 3:01 PM

    the strangest thing i’ve eaten on a stick was probably a corndog. I haven’t been to a lot of state fairs! i’d certainly love to try something crazy like chicken parmesan on a stick (no deep-fried for me!)

  48. 48

    andi T. — May 30, 2011 @ 3:24 PM

    oh my goodness! this is awesome! my husband and I threw our first cookout last summer and since doing tomato-mozzarella salad on a stick, I have been obsessed with finiding recipes like this that are easy… for yesterday’s cookout, I did fruit salad on a stick. so good!

    Michelle Torres — May 30, 2011 @ 3:40 PM

    Would love to win this book!!!!! I have not had anything unusual on a stick yet, but I do love serving things on sticks as they look better and are great for presentation, especially at special parties and get togethers!!!!

    Jacqueline — May 30, 2011 @ 3:41 PM

    Brilliant, just brilliant! I couldn’t resist coming over when I read the title and I wasn’t disappointed. It immediately reminded me of the Anne Fine book Eating Things on Sticks, a very amusing children’s book.

    LJMH — May 30, 2011 @ 5:27 PM

    most of my “stick eating” has been kabobs, so not all that unusual. On my first trip to Japan, though, I thought I had been pretty adventurous in my eating until my seatmate on the airplane ride home told me he had eaten sparrow on a stick :(

  55. 55

    Laura — May 30, 2011 @ 6:42 PM

    I wouldn’t say it is weird as much as a little too indulgent. I have had a fried twinkie on a stick.

  56. 56

    Ali — May 30, 2011 @ 6:47 PM

    I had a breakfast sausage wrapped in pancake on a stick. Otherwise just standard corndogs or chili cheese corndogs on a stick :) Thank you for hosting this giveaway. The cookbook looks like a hoot.

  57. 57

    Kimiko — May 30, 2011 @ 7:53 PM

    The only unusual thing I could think of that I’ve eaten on a stick is takoyaki (Japanese street food – contains octopus and other ingredients formed in a ball, on a stick) Although it’s not weird to me since I’m familiar with Japanese food, a lot of others might find it strange.

  58. 58

    Kris — May 30, 2011 @ 8:07 PM

    As much as I like food you’d think I’d have eaten lots of yummies on a stick but I’ve not eaten anything unusual. But hopefully when I get this book it will open up a new world for me

  60. 60

    Tera — May 30, 2011 @ 8:31 PM

    The only thing which I deem as different that I’ve tried on a stick is mac and cheese! It was good and decadent but definitely something I wouldn’t eat on a regular basis! Now give me desserts on a stick and I’ll eat them all!!!

    I have tried foods on a stick before, but nothing unusual. I’m always looking for new ways of doing things, that’s what makes this cookbook interesting.
    Looking at these dishes are motivating and inspiring to get your creativity going.

  68. 68

    MichelleH — May 31, 2011 @ 4:47 AM

    How fun! My pickiest eater says food tastes better on a stick, so this would be perfect for us. I think he says it because I’m not very creative with putting food on a stick (and refuse to do corndogs lol), but this book would get around that for me.

    Pattyann — May 31, 2011 @ 8:04 AM

    Love this idea. We will be trying the strawberries on a stick soon. The most unusual thing I have eaten on a stick is a whole mango covered in chili sauce. The street vendors in Mexico sell them and I must admit they are amazing.

    I made hot cocoa on a stick as a part of Christmas goodie bags and they were a hit! I think these strawberry trifle sticks look so good…maybe sinful if I used cream puffs…I really should be working ;)

    Those Strawberry Trifles on a Stick would make great wedding food! I’d love to get my chance to get a copy of this book. I’ve seen the reviews around several blogs and I’m anticipating the salivating over the photos!

    Only eaten kebabs on sticks. Looks fun and great for entertaining. Would love to give these recipes a try and win a copy of this cookbook.

    I once had a fried Snickers bar on a stick. It was okay, but I would love to see what other types of things that aren’t necessarily fried could be made on sticks! I hope I win a copy of the book! :-)

    I’d love a copy of this book to get experimenting… looks like a keeper! I’ve had caesar salad on a stick before, but that’s not too weird… guess I need to be more adventurous!

    Jill Jones — May 31, 2011 @ 2:46 PM

    Nothing unusual, but my hubby is a “master” at kebabs on the grill. When he starts mixing up marinades, I move over! He has a real knack for putting together uncommon ingredients and coming up with a to-die-for meal!! Horray for summer bbq’s!

    Danielle D. — May 31, 2011 @ 3:26 PM

    I don’t recall having ever eaten anything weird from a stick. Of course when we were little we roasted our hotdogs from a stick out of the yard. lol. I’d love to win this though! Looks interesting.

    Terri — May 31, 2011 @ 4:22 PM

    Wow, these look awesome. I think I might make these for the retirement party next week at school or the baby shower. The most unusual thing that I’ve had on a stick would be mock fried chicken that you dipped in this amazing peanut sauce.. The recipe was from Cooking Light for the sauce and family fun mag for the chicken.

    Kendra McIvor — May 31, 2011 @ 4:27 PM

    I’ve had the usual corndog and the not so unusual anymore candybars. I like to skewer fruit and serve with a dip. VERY fun! It’s amazing what kids will eat if you put it on a stick, too!

    Candy C — May 31, 2011 @ 4:43 PM

    Fried Snickers on a stick was awesome! I must have this book!

    Kathryn Reilly Nussbaum — May 31, 2011 @ 4:52 PM

    The clever presentation and ease of skewering foods will surely allow me to entertain more often. I love all the great ideas.

    I’ve had a spiral potato on a stick, and I’ve had chocolate covered oranges on a stick. Not very unique, but fun! I’ve had this cookbook on my wish list, so I would love to win a copy. :)

    Dolores — May 31, 2011 @ 5:40 PM

    I’ve never tried anything weird on a stick unless you considered corndogs weird. The strawberry trifle looks amazing and adding the blueberries sounds perfect. I can not wait to try this. Awesome and Easy.

    Hi!…um, I once had a very, teensie, tiny bite of squirrel, guessed it, On A Stick! I am thinking that no one wanted to tarnish their kitchen implements permanently by cooking or serving squirre. Thanks! Love your recipes.

    I’ve never had anything weird/crazy but am dying to try a deep fried snickers or oreo on a stick… and I would LOVE to win that book! I need to get more into this “stick thing” because I think my kids would totally enjoy it. :o)

    Lisa Tyler — May 31, 2011 @ 11:37 PM

    I haven’t eaten anything really memorable on a stick (yet)… but I hope to change that with Matt’s book! ;-)

    Kara — June 1, 2011 @ 7:43 AM

    I’ve eaten some pretty strange things, but I can’t think of anything unusual that I have eaten off of a stick, which seems unusual to me.

    We just tried shish-ka-bobs for the first time and my kids have decided its a “new family favorite!”

    I’ve only had the traditional stuff “on a stick,” but I love the idea of trying some new things–like the Strawberry Trifle!

    I have two kids that will eat just about anything on a stick. So anything I don’t think they will try I put it on a stick! Love the stick food!

    Gator pops. Chunks of alligator deep fried and on a stick like a lollipop. Didn’t taste better on a stick, but was hoping.
