I was just notified that this took grand prize of on line recipe club, Love of Foods, for their Mothers Day contest.
I was in the mood to make a trifle and so I asked my sweetie if he wanted a raspberry trifle or a chocolate one. Then I thought well why not make both, and this is what I came up with.
This is not so much baking as assembling, and is very easy, yet makes a spectacular presentation.
A little raspberry liquor or kirsch sprinkled on the cake layers is very nice indeed, but optional.
