    gailanng's Note:

    A fruit-filled trifle using a combination of whipping cream and sour cream to replicate a beloved English treat. Well worth the effort. Chill time not included. See my recipe for Victorian Hot Milk Sponge Cake for the sponge cake.

      OMG, over the top fabulous! The cream is not too rich, not too sweet....the finished trifle is absolutely amazing! I made it for dh's birthday & he's going to make it for mine because nobody got enough the 1st time around! Very easy. And 1tsp unflavored gelatin is approximately 1/2 packet. I did cheat a bit & used a large can of peaches, drained. But hey, it's the middle of winter! I also messed up the order...I did cake, cream, fruit, cake, cream, fruit but it worked! THANK YOU!
