Trifle anyone?

We love making fun large or mini trifles recipes up for a special weekend treat, party idea or to share over Christmas.

Homemade trifles taste so good too, don’t you think?

They always remind me of Christmas as every year when I was little you could guarantee a nice big homemade trifle on our Christmas tea party table.

Then we would go to Grandmas house on Boxing day and she would have made one too.

Homemade Trifle.
