    I like the idea of making the trifles individually. When I make a big trifle, it looks so pretty -- and then I serve it and it's a big mess! However, I don't think guests will think you fussed over this dessert. Anyone who cooks knows that a trifle can be put together in no time with day old cake, berries and cream.

    Perfect dessert recipe for a hot summer's night when you don't want to use the oven. Any cake and any berry can be substituted. Also, number of servings can be adjusted.
