    BecR's Note:

    Strawberries and cream trifle is a lovely traditional English spring or summertime dessert of luscious fresh strawberries nestled amongst layers of sponge cake, sherry laced preserves, and fresh whipped cream arranged in a pretty glass trifle dish. If desired, add a layer of freshly prepared custard sauce Classic Custard Sauce. Delicious! A beautiful addition to the dessert table, or for a ladies luncheon or Afternoon Tea.

      Wonderful recipe. I made a cornstarch pudding. I used a white cake. My guests loved it. Thanks, ;)
