Yummy trifle! It brings back my childhood memory when my mom use to make it for us in summer time when we had fresh strawberries and blueberries from garden. It tastes just like hers! I made 4 individual ones and use fresh berries. It is very easy and quick put together and tastes great! I couldn't find pound cake here so I used Madeira cake which is almost same heavy dense cake. Thank you Janey!
