I've just tried to upload a photo of my trifle so I hope it works...
- small jam rollettes on bottom first, drizzled with port, sherry or apple juice
- big square chunks of red jelly put down on top of jam rollettes (make the jelly in a flat tray separately & cut into chunks once set)
- thick custard on top of jelly
- whipped cream on top of custard
- top with fresh fruit & sprig of mint to garnish
I do a slightly different version - kind of like a tiramisu but with berries.
I soak Italian sponge finger biscuits in brandy and apple juice and put in bottom of glass bowl. Then I mix marscapone, whipped cream, apple juice, brandy and vanilla essence together and layer on top. Then custard/creme patisserie, then loads of fresh berries and cherries.
I do it for Christmas and it varies every year. Some years I'll add jelly.
Now I want trifle..
I have slices of the jam rolled sponge cakes (whatever they're called) on the bottom with plenty of sweet sherry over them. Almost drowned actually
Then a tin of drained fruit salad, then custard (brandy custard when its out at Christmas) then whipped cream to top it off. I put cherries or kiwi fruit on the top.
Mmmm I think I need to make one...

i made mine tonight... shall see how it turns out. probably bad knowing my luck! certainly doesn't look like SeaShanty's photo above!!
I'm really the only one that likes trifle in my family. DF will eat it as long as there's no fruit in it.
I like the sound of the black forrest one though!!
