The best thing about any trifle is that it can be customized to suit individual taste buds. Different elements come together to create this unique experience in your mouth. Always makes an impression on your guests with taste and appearance.
The beauty of this dessert is in the layers. Traditionally a trifle has a layer of sponge, cream, custard, fruits, and garnish. I used lady finger biscuits and a mango cheesecake layer instead of a sponge and custard layer. Hence, my trifle turned out much lighter.
Seasonal fruits are the best ingredients for a trifle. The range of choice of fruits for trifle is numerous. When choosing fruits for a trifle, it’s important to use fresh, ripe fruits for the best flavor. Mix and match different fruits to create a unique and delicious flavor combination. Mangoes, berries, kiwis, oranges, etc. Since mangoes are back in season, I added a layer of cheesecake.
I prepared trifles in individual glasses, and they looked so pretty.
