1 cup red seedless grapes
1 cup mandarin oranges (with juice)
1 cup cantaloupe
1 cup blueberries
1 bottle of champagne or sparkling wine

Irish Trifle
1 packages of any cake mix, as long as it's white cake
Green, yellow, and red food coloring
Ready made Philadelphia Cheese Cake Filling (available in your cooler section, by the cream cheese)
1 large can of Mandarin Oranges
Fresh kiwi
Mason jars

Makes 4 servings

Prepare the cake according to cake mix.  Separate the mix into three bowls.

In one bowl, leave the mix the original color (white).  In another bowl, combine yellow and red food coloring to make an orange color of the cake mix.  In the third bowl, mix in green food coloring to create a green cake mix.  Spoon each mix in to a mini-muffin pan.  Creating a multitude of mini-muffins which are white, orange, and green.  Bake according to package instructions.

Cool the mini-muffins and start assembling your mason jars.  First, add the

2-3 green muffins to the bottom, add some fresh kiwi for a second layer, and top with 1-2 tablespoons of Cheesecake filling.  Next, put the 2-3 white mini-muffins on top and follow with another layer of cheesecake filling.

Lastly, add 2-3 orange muffins, then top off with mandarin oranges and pour in a little of the mandarin orange syrup over the entire layer.  Then, add the last layer of cheesecake filling. 

If your mason jar starts to get full, remember to push the layers down with a large spoon as your are working.  This should give you plenty of room for the other layers.
