Strawberry Shortcake Trifle

Trifle is a classic English dessert with basic components consisting of vanilla custard, sherry soaked sponge cake, fruit, jam & sweetened whipped cream. Southerners made it their own decades ago by using pound cake with variations that include orange liqueur, assorted seasonal fruits, chocolate & coffee infused creations. Although classically prepared in a footed trifle bowl, they can be layered in just about anything large or small. One of the benefits of serving guests Strawberry Shortcake Trifle when entertaining is that the presentation automatically makes it a conversation piece as it is the distinctive layers in the glass that make it so pretty. Macerated Strawberries topped with Vanilla Pastry Cream & tiny cubes of Buttermilk Pound Cake leave enough space to repeat them for an eye-appealing look. Placing the Chantilly Cream in a piping bag finishes the dessert flawlessly when garnished over the surface. Whether it’s   two or twenty five, it’s effortless to make as many as needed.

Strawberries are a versatile fruit as they can star in dessert favorites or be used to accent side dishes, salads, beverages, breakfast classics & so much more. When preparing a bowl of fresh fruit, strawberries most certainly brighten the mix by adding comforting taste & texture. Once strawberries have been cleaned & dried, they will need to be hulled.

The Technique

Pick up the strawberry & use a sharp paring knife to remove the stem. Insert the tip at a slight angle & turn the berry whilst you cut around the green portion. Once complete, the stem should be removed as well as a good bit of the sour, white portion of it. Complete this technique for the remaining strawberries. Trim the ends, if desired, then slice them to prepare the Macerated Strawberries.
