Shamrock Cake & Cream Parfaits Recipe


Looking for an easy, festive dessert to serve on St. Patrick’s Day? These Cake & Cream Parfaits are quick and easy, can be made ahead, and taste great. In reality, there’s nothing Irish about them, except for the fact that they are green, just like Ireland, which is also called “The Emerald Isle.” The refreshing taste of pineapple and lime mix with cream and angel food cake to create a light and airy dessert. These parfaits can be made up to 3 days ahead, and actually get better upon sitting.

Shamrock Cake and Cream Parfaits can be made with different flavors of gelatin to suit other holidays, in which case they won’t be called “Shamrock;” they’ll need a name like Valentine or Halloween. They can also be made anytime using favorite flavors of gelatin for a quick and easy dessert.

12 Servings


1 20 oz. can crushed pineapple
1 3 oz. package lime gelatin
3/4 cup sugar
5 ice cubes
green paste food coloring

2 cups heavy cream, whipped

1 14-16 ounce angel food cake, cut into 1 inch chunks
  1. Pour the crushed pineapple into a strainer over a large microwaveable container.

  2. Press on the pineapple to remove as much liquid as possible; set the pineapple aside.

  3. Microwave the pineapple juice 3-5 minutes or until boiling; add the gelatin and sugar, stirring until completely dissolved.

  4. Stir in enough paste food coloring to make the mixture a bright green.

  5. Add the ice cubes, stir till melted, then put the mixture in the freezer while preparing the remaining ingredients (of if you have lots of time, refrigerate).

  6. Mix the cooled gelatin mixture and the reserved pineapple into the whipped cream; stir in the cake cubes.

  7. Spoon the mixture into 12 parfait or other fancy glasses.

  8. Refrigerate until set, about 30 minutes to one hour.

  9. Decorate with green sprinkles or shamrock cake decorations if desired.
