From wikipedia – A Trifle is a dessert dish made from thick (or often solidified) custard, fruit, sponge cake, fruit juice or jelly, and whipped cream. These ingredients are usually arranged in layers.
I made this Pumpkin Peach and Apple Trifle – it was my first trifle. I got this huge bowl as a gift last summer and have been wanting to use it for some time. I had fun putting this together and it was a huge hit at my Halloween Harvest party I went to.
