Meal maths: centrepiece trifles

Beautiful to look at and simple to make, a trifle is a traditional finale to a festive meal. We’ve highlighted the five key ingredient types you need – just choose one of each for a stress-free show. 

Pick one item from each column to add up to your ideal dish!

StepS to success

● Drained tinned or thawed frozen fruit can be used as a substitute for fresh fruit

● For a tasty grown-up trifle, try soaking the sponge in sherry or Cointreau first

● The sponge and jelly layer can be made ahead to allow the jelly to set

● Add the topping and decorations just before serving

● Layer your trifle in a glass bowl for full festive effect!



Start with a trifle essential – lots of fruit in luscious combinations.



Cake or biscuits

Next, choose cake to add soft, sponge texture – or try the crunch of biscuit.


Jelly or mousse

Add classic jelly or a mousse for another layer of texture.



Top things off with the creaminess of custard or a yogurt alternative.


Finish off

Finish with a flourish of sprinkles or an irresistible chocolate treat.
