Assemble Trifle

  • Fill the bottom with cake. Create a single row of cake around the edges and pack the bottom layer so the sides don’t budge.

  • Fill the center with strawberry chunks.
  • Use half of the Champagne Mascarpone Whipped Cream and cover the strawberries. Gently push down on the sides to fill the gaps between the strawberries.
  • Repeat steps 7 to 10. Smooth out the whipped cream on top and decorate as desired.


  • Store the trifle in the fridge until it is ready to be enjoyed.
