My latest baking adventure was making a trifle, after acquiring a trifle bowl at Le Walmarche for a mere $7. I decided to make everything from scratch and it ended up being a lot more work than I originally intended. And it didn't look quite as good as the picture in the recipe book. But it still tasted pretty good, none left over to take home!
A trifle is a traditional English desert. The one I made had a layer of orange pound cake, then raspberry jam, fresh raspberries, then orange cream (kind of like custard) - repeat that a couple times and add some whip cream on top! Yum! The production was somewhat of a comedy of errors due to my useless oven which burned the cake but would not cook the orange cream - go figure. So the moral of the story, is not to make any complicated deserts unless you have an oven worth its salt.
With that said... I can't wait to move!!
