Another thin layer of cream, the remaining cake crumbled on top for effect and a smattering of different berries to showcase them and show what is in the trifle. I like the stems on the strawberries to show off their natural state.

Everyone seemed to enjoy it. I think it was gone in 2 hours. Considering that is a full cake, 4 1/2 pints (minimum!) of berries and some custard and cream - that's a good sign! i'd like to take credit for the wonderfulness of it but the Oregon berries were the stars - I just gave them a nice stage to show off their stuff!

Looks awesome!

This looks right up Matt's alley! I have a feeling this will be on his wish list.
How many people do you work with?

It's so easy to make but with the right ingredients (like awesome berries) you can blow people's minds. There are over 100 in the office but the group eating this was much smaller. Merrick might have a better idea about that. I'll guess 20? You always want to assembly at least 4 hours in advance to allow the layers to meld a little but not more than a day or you will end up with things breaking down and losing their integrity. But, you can get all the pieces together in advance and do your assembly the night before or the afternoon of. Trifle bowls are pretty inexpensive too and could serve other purposes. I go for lightweight since I have to lug it into the office. :)

That looks like it would feed an army.

You'd think but they did some serious eating and wiped it out! Usually a good sign you got it right. Again...have to thank the berries for that--they are the stars. I was never that big a fan of fresh blueberries out of hand. Usually had to be baked in something or a sauce, etc. Oregon blueberries are sublime. I'm sitting here eating them by handfuls they are so good. But, they bake up nice too. :)

I think I ate half of it myself! It's ok though. The nutrition of the 3 types of berries cancels out the cream, cake and custard.
