A Nice Change from Pumpkin Pie
I wanted something different for a post-holiday party. The trifle was wonderful to look at (mine turned out looking just like the picture) and it tasted as good as it looked. Everyone enjoyed the trifle even those whose tastes are more traditional or lean to chocolate only desserts. It was fairly easy to prepare with the biggest challenge being where to put it in the fridge to set-up. Thanks for helping my party be a success.
