    Oh my gosh, those wall ovens, I must have them. Those are gorgeous. A friend of mine has their products and I love cooking at her house.

    This trifle is making me want to run into my kitchen and whip one up immediately. So pretty, and let’s face it, pretty food just tastes better.

    i wonder if the layering effect comes from “over creaming” as described here if so it could be tricky to get the 3 layers. I’m not a fan of the “fudgy” layer, but cool effect regardless.

  14. 14

    So nice and easy and so good! Love all of the berries!
