Black and White Trifles - by Summer
I had originally wanted to make these for book club, but decided that the assembly of these would make them difficult to transport. In a way I am glad that I didn't take them, because that means I didn't have to share :-)
I was a little worried after getting a text from Lisa about how much she struggled initially with them. I gave myself plenty of time to make the pudding. I was prepared that it was going to take a long time to thickened, but surprisingly, it didn't seem too bad. I think I was preparing for the worst. I divided the pudding and put them in the fridge to hang out for a while.
I also used Sara Lee for the pound cake (why mess with a good thing). I had some orange liqueur on hand, so I used them in mine and my husband's trifle. I left it out all together when assembling one that I made for my son. I didn't even try to take a picture of the strawberries after Lisa's awesome shot in her post :-)
We all loved this dessert a lot! The husband and I could have done without the orange liqueur though. And to keep from having any issues with children and the whipping cream - I didn't put any on my son's and just made some for me and my husband. I would love to make this again for a dinner party - it's easy, but looks pretty fancy!
