How To Make A Trifle

Hi everyone!  Today I am super excited to share a family favorite!  It's so pretty and so yummy!  Ok, to get started you'll need all of this stuff:

You'll need:

1. Birds Pudding approximately (4 cups)
2. Short Bread (2-4 loaves)
3. Grenadine Syrup
4. Whipping Cream (1 pint)
5. Berries, lots of berries:

Make sure that the berries are washed and dried before adding them :)  Next pull out your trifle dish if you have one, if not you can still make one in a pretty bowl.  And layer the pound cake and drizzle grenadine syrup like so:

Then ladle some of the pudding in and some of the whipping cream and some berries.  This process will be repeated about 3x, so make sure that you spread out the ingrediens evenly :)

Then you just repeat this step 3x and voila... you have a trifle!  It is so pretty and yummy!  Here is a view of both trifles that we served at our Memorial day party:

Here's our gluten free version for my cousin Sara:

Ok, here's one more view of my trifle:

It's so yummy!  What do you think?!


  1. That sounds lovely! Fresh fruit is the perfect thing for a trifle!

  2. so beautiful! I wish I had kept the trifle dish I received as a wedding gift 20 years ago!

  3. What a great looking trifle! I have never used whole slices of cake before. Looks great! If you have time, I would love for you to stop by & link up to my Sweet & Savory Saturdays party:

    Hope to see you there!

  10. Good Afternoon Ashley, I love trifle and it is as English as tea and biscuits.
    I used to make trifle at Christmas time. I would take care over this creation to make it beautiful, I would present it on Christmas Day, tea-time. I would lay out beautiful dishes and my nicest spoons and do you know I was the only one who ate it. I used to think that the family was so full of Christmas eating, that there was no room for trifle. It went on like this for many years and then my daughter told me, the trifle was not eaten because no one liked it, apart from me!
    So I am glad you are championing the Trifle.....I am 100% behind you as your trifle looks delicious.
    Best Wishes

  11. The trifle looks gorgeous. Do you serve whole pieces of cake or break it up for serving? The berries are just so beautiful. Perfect for summer.

    1. We usually just scoop out a big spoonful for each person. It ruins the effect pretty quickly :) hope that helps!

  12. This looks so delicious! This would be perfect to link up to my Create It Thursday's live now!

  13. How thoughtful that you made one gluten free! That would have been so hard to watch everybody eat and not try it.
    It looks fabulous. I do one with white chocolate pudding and coolwhip....yours sounds so much healthier.
