December is trifle time ! Trifles are so versatile to make. But I think the basics are quite clear – some kind of jello, custard, cake, fruit and some toppings.

These Strawberry Liqueur Trifles are not made with the usual box of jello, but instead with a Fruit Juice which is being jello-rised (not a word? .. well, I am sure you know what I mean!).

I used fresh sliced Strawberries in this recipe, but used ready-made thick Custard as I just about always have a couple of cartons of long-life Custard in the pantry.

The Caramel Swiss Rolls are from Woolworths, but you can use any kind or type of cake (pieces or slices) in a trifle.

Adding Liqueur or any other alcohol is definitely an adult only dessert. However, to make it kid-friendly you may want to leave out the Liqueur and instead use some more Fruit Juice.

The Wild Berry Juice which I have used, has a bit of zest to it, which I kind of like. All the rest of the ingredients are quite sweet and the zestiness makes a delicious contrast in taste.

Also up to you what kind of Juice you prefer to use, and the great thing about a trifle is that the flavors do not really have to go together. Like Strawberries and Berry Juice, a Pineapple juice will go just as well with Strawberries.

And there is no such thing as too many colors in a trifle, especially during the Festive season where everything IS about color.

*Note : Make individual servings or one large trifle. The larger trifle may just take a little longer for the Jello-Juice to set.
