If you're not familiar with "trifle", well, why not? No seriously, this concoction usually consists of some sort of cake, whipped cream, custard and fruit layered in a decorative glass dish in a festive manner. For this party, the bringer of triflings didn't get especially artistic in the arrangement of the components, but they can be quite elaborate. This one just tasted good(!).Violence UnSilenced

Trifle is my all-time favorite dish. I've had dreams about gorging on it ever since I was a kid. There's something about the way all the layers mush together in a frighteningly sugar-filled mess of goodness. Every spoonful - I suspect a fork is more proper, but I get more with a spoon - brings a different mix of flavors.

Funny you should mention the aesthetic. What I've always found cool about trifle is how chaotic it seems. When it's sitting on a table alongside the other catch-as-you-can dishes, it looks positively unpalatable. Which works in my favor, as everyone goes for the other desserts and leaves the trifle alone. More for me!

I'm hungry now, for some reason. Gotta go rustle up some ingredients...
Damn, now I'm hankering for some. My wife inherited an incredible recipe for it...I'm thinking we need an excuse sometime soon. Dinner party, anyone?

i've never had it but I am intrigued! instead of a seven layer burrito or dip, next time I will grab for a multilayer desert = same kind of calorie damage :) ( i think!)
