  1. This homemade Strawberry Whipped Cream Trifle is scrumptious looking and probably as good on the palate. Thank you for a recipe to wow my guests.

  2. I really have to invest in some small mason jars. I love this presentation. This sounds absolutely delicious and simple too. Thank you for sharing.

  3. I remember my mum making trifle, I didn’t like it then so didn’t pay too much attention but I remember there was a layer of jelly on top of some finger shaped trifle sponges at the bottom, there was also a layer of custard and then whipped cream with sprinkles on top. Oh yes, the sponges were soaked in sherry too – kids got one without the sherry 🙂

    1. That sounds similar to the English trifle my mom makes. It’s an old family recipe and I think it tastes horrendous, I can’t get over the soggy cake. It’s sponge cake soaked in sherry, dark chocolate pieces, custard, candied cherries and then green jello gets poured over.
