You don't need a trifle dish to show off your trifle. You can even make small individual servings like the one pictured here.
I like making trifles not only do they taste good but they are appealing to the eye.
And this one has the dark cherries that helps lower your blood sugar. Read about dark cherries on my diabetic Squidoo lens at http://squidoo.com/low_carb_recipes
