This is a pretty and scrumptious dessert! You can buy the lemon curd and strawberry sauce in the grocery store -or you can make your own. My mother use to make her own lemon-curd. She refered to it as lemon cheese, because she said when the bubbles burst they looked like holes in cheese. She used hers for pie, cake filling and in-between cookies.

I love trifles, and this is a really good one. I'll take and post a photograph when I can use both hands/arms (Broke wrist, Ulna, Radius and bones on top of hand - Ouch!)

Fresh whipped cream is so much better than the stuff you buy in a tub or a can and so easy to make. We prefer to sweeten our whipped cream...
