CAN YOU MAKE TRIFLE THE DAY BEFORE?
CAKE: You can make and freeze the cake 2-3 days before assembling your trifle dessert. Make sure to store the cut up cake pieces in an airtight container and put them in the freezer. When you are ready to make your trifle, defrost your cake pieces in the refrigerator for a few hours before you start the process.
FRUIT and BERRIES: It is best to wait and cut the berries right before you assemble your trifle dessert. If cut too soon, your berries and fruit pieces might dry out.
CREAM: The cream should be added to your trifle at the same time you add your berries. If added too soon and allowed to sit, the cream will soak into the cake pieces and make them soggy.
CAN A EASY TO MAKE TRIFLE RECIPE SIT OVERNIGHT?
Yes, you can store any of these Easy to Make Trifle Recipes overnight if covered tightly. It is best to eat this dessert within 2-3 days after making.
Make sure to put it in the refrigerator as soon as you are done serving to your family and guests. This will help keep the fruit and berries fresh, and also keep the right consistency of the cream layer.
Keep in mind that as your trifle sits in the refrigerator, the cream and pudding will become more soggy and will soak into your cake pieces the longer it sits. We recommend trying to eat leftovers within 24 hours after making.
