    An interesting dessert from Paula Deen. She served these in a martini glass and it looked so elegant.

      Lovely trifle! For some odd reason, I couldn't find lemon drops anywhere (I tried 4 different places), so I had to sub in some Mexican Selz candy that tastes like lemon-lime soda -- tasted fine, but not as pretty as real yellow lemon drops would've been (these candies are whitish-clear). To offset the white candies, I grated some fresh lemon zest over the trifle as well. I didn't want to fill the fridge with a bunch of breakable glasses of trifle, so I just made one in a little individual-size dish for me, and put the rest into a large glass dish. I used Charlotte J's Homemade Lemon Curd for the curd, and limoncello for the liqueur. Sorry, the pics don't do this justice, but very yummy all the same! Thanks for posting!
