This Trifle is a layered dessert that has a German influence from the wine though the trifle is of English origin. This one has lemon curd which is also a favorite of the English. Given a tropical feel from the apricots, bananas, coconut, and nuts! Fusion I would Say so! The hardest part of making this is the microwaved lemon curd which take all of 10 minutes. This makes a good pot luck dessert.
