Trifle help please!...

I plan to make a trifle on Christmas Eve for Christmas day.

Should I make the complete trifle or leave the cream until just before serving?

Also any hints/recipes/ideas please.

As far as I can remember, my Nana makes hers the night before and leaves it in the fridge for the flavours to mingle, I'm not speaking from my own experience here though  smile


I am dying to try this  yummy

I always made the parts the night before and put together on the day. But I haven't ever tried it the other way round so am ready to believe that making the whole thing works.

If memory serves me correctly, my sister-in-law and I, years ago, used to always make it the day before and pop it in the fridge with no problems. Our trifle consisted of sponge/jam base with sherry, topped with drained peaches from a can, topped with custard, jelly and finally cream.

Re: Trifle help please!...

I think you are safe to make the whole thing the night before if you keep it in the fridge. But personally I would add the cream last minute, as it is not much of a hassle and I don't smush the tips with foil or so. Also there will not be so much condensation on top when you take it out to your summer air.
But those are really only personal (aesthetic) preferences. wink

Re: Trifle help please!...

I would make it up to the custard stage the day before and add the cream on the day - the only reason I say this is because that's what Mum does lol

Hint:  if there is any trifle left over, the juices can separate a bit and gather in the bottom of the bowl.  If you are trying to pour them off it's best to scoop out with a spoon and not tip it down the sink because you could lose the rest of the trifle into the pile of dirty dishes yikes  Daughter's experience, not mine.
