    I thought of posting this under the generic Q&A forum, but then figured there would be a large congregation of trifle-eaters in here.

    Sushiman made the most beautiful (almost too beautiful to eat) trifle for our Saturday lunch. Aside from being gorgeous, it was H-U-G-E!!! Even though we had tons of guests, there's a good half of it left, enough to feed a small village.

    I'm not so sure trifle can be frozen. The cake, yes, Bird's Custard, sure, but the jelly? Any experienced trifle-freezers out there?

    I'm pretty sure you can't. I have never tried. There's never been enough left... icon_redface.gif icon_redface.gif
    Why don't you try freezing a small amount and seeing how it turns out? I think the jelly and fruit would end up pretty watery.

    The jelly may be fine, but I'm really not sure about the custard. Like MarieAlice, it's never a problem here icon_biggrin.gif

    my friend says you can buy frozen trifle so no reason why you can't freeze it. The jelly might be a bit icey tho.

    Sorry but I think at least it will lose its 'body' and at worst it will go grainy, mushy and watery. Some things just have to be eaten straightaway.....shame I'm not coming to Israel till next weekend!!!

    Well, the question seems to be moot now in any case, it's almost gone (trifle for breakfast, trifle for dinner...)

    Marsha, when are you coming?

    Since bird's custard is cornstarch/flour based, cornstarch goes "spongey" when frozen so if anyone wants to freeze trifle, you'd probably be better off making a proper egg custard... Of course frozen egg custard whipped with air is ice cream icon_wink.gif

    We have a piece or two left, would you like me to freeze it for you?

    Being a widower I tend to cook a huge amount and freeze it for later meals. Can I do this with trifle? I will use fresh fruit, jelly, cake, custard and cream which comes out of a pressurised container

    Based on what was said before, trifle may not be a good idea to freeze. We never did it in the end.

    No, you cannot freeze trifle. Its the jelly that does not freeze well, and also the custard could cause problems. Of course, if you have made a traditional trifle and put sherry in then the alcohol will lower the freezing point as well.
    My suggestion is - eat it!
