Independent Baking

Since the 4th is upon us, I made Marie's trifle a little patriotic. I guess I should have gotten blueberries instead of blackberries but I don't like blueberries as much as blackberries in my trifles. Since the strawberries were hard to find at the produce stand, I used some of my frozen Oregon strawberry jam. I think it worked out well. I decorated it a little on top to complete the theme.

A little sparkly sugar. And then some pretty layers since I don't have to slosh it around on a bus and walk it 6 blks. to get there.

I even had some leftover supplies to enable me to make a couple of individual trifles and an opportunity to use my little trifle bowls.

An easy way to celebrate the bounty of the season and an historical event--without the noise of fireworks or fire threat!

Oh, and YammaSue, that trifle bowl was $1 at Dollar Tree. Is that a cool place or what??

Trifle revealed! I have never eaten one before. I don't tend to eat my own baking. Since I made the two little individual ones, I thought I'd show the inner workings of a trifle (at least an individual one). A little blurry in one spot but you get the idea of the layers when enjoying one.

Looks beautiful. I can taste it from the photo. Great job.

I have to say it is pretty good. The blackberries aren't very sweet and a little firm but the rest of the ingredients help sweeten their disposition and they aren't so firm they spoil the moment. I've never eaten one of my trifles before. Not bad. And the little trifle dishes are fun. Hope Marie and her family enjoy theirs as well.

I just told Erika that I thought you would have a cool dessert on your page and I was right! That looks amazing, are you sending it to us via FedEx or UPS? :-)

Trifles would be pretty hard to ship. Short lifespan and temperature sensitive. Maybe all the parts frozen for you to assemble. In the winter. LOL

Trifles are so incredibly easy and yet bring so much to presentation. And a clear bowl is as cheap and accessible as The Dollar Tree. This bowl is probably classified "mid-sized" and yet it held over 1 pt. of blackberries as well as most of my strawberry jam and the cake and custard and whipped cream. Amazing how much you can get in such a small bowl . :)
