A Mere Trifle

Strawberry Lemonade Trifle
8 oz jar of lemon curd
Container frozen non-dairy topping
Pound cake (We substituted a lemon pudding ring cake)
Slice the strawberries, cube the cake, mix the curd into the topping, and layer all in a trifle dish. Except we couldn't find the trifle dish. Oh, well.
Berries, check.
Cake, cubed.  Could have gone smaller.
Whipped topping + lemon curd.
First layer.  Like I said, the cake maybe should have been cubed smaller
First dab of lemon crud cUrd topping.  Maybe used too much per layer.

With a "real" trifle bowl, the sides are straight, so the layers more even, and are easier to see.

I suppose I should have gotten pictures of it dished up, but we had to eat it quickly to keep cats out of the topping...

I think I read somewhere the "trifle" started out as a way to get rid of cake that was old and dried out. ISTR someone making a trifle for a Christmas gathering that had booze in it, but that was a long time ago...
