Trifle is a traditional English dessert. Generally a combination of layered pound or sponge cake, fresh fruit and cream or custard.
The flexibility of building a trifle is perfect for cooking with kids and our children in momstown Milton had a chance to create a Rainbow Trifle themselves.
Help your children wash and cut the fruit into bite-size pieces. Slice the cake into cubes or large pieces (the idea is each serving will have a scoop of everything).
A glass or clear bowl is the best for trifle so the layers can be seen. The visual layers are super fun for kids to watch as the bowl fills up.
Help your child layer cake, cream, fruit, cake, cream fruit for a traditional trifle. Our momstown kids put cake, a variety of fruits and then whipped cream on the very top with sprinkles. Any way works that makes your kids happy! We said this was flexible!
