Kids Christmas Trifle – the cheats version … Sometimes you just need to have something on the table, especially when you’ve forgotten or have no time to think. This is where this great looking but super easy dessert comes in… I was in need of a kid’s dessert for Christmas and I had run out of time to really sit down and plan something.
You can certainly make your own jam/jelly rolls and custard. Even take the time to make a true fruit jelly but if the last thing you have is time then this is it, just perfect for the kids christmas table.
This is a feel as you go type recipe as everyone will have a different size vessel, just buy a little more than you expect.
If you don’t have a large, clear trifle bowl (and who does really) then pop into your local St.Vincents de Paul or Salvos or any op shop and buy a glass vase for next to nothing, which is what I did… At least you can use it for flowers afterwards.
Assign your kids to making it as they will love the sculpting and designing of such a centre piece.
To hasten the setting time of the jelly be sure to use a shallow tray (roasting tray if need be) rather than a deep bowl.
