I have all the stuff to make it, just not sure when to put it all in the bowl, ready for dessert tonight...
I made the sponge earlier, turned out like hardness! ! ! Bloody crappy oven! ! ! So should i be putting the juice and such in now so its nice and soft? ? ? ? ? TIA :)

You should be able to soften with the jelly, then place in fridge to set then add fruit and custard leave to set then cream, set again. Add topping if using fruit, crumbled flake or 100's & 1000's.

Some add gingerale in their trifle, I just don't like soggy trifle so I don't add.

Pour on da booze!
Trifle isn't trifle without sherry. IMHO.
and it will soften your hard sponge not to mention anyone who eats it!

got to be sponge in the bottom, soaked in sherry, tin of drained fruit cocktail next, then jelly (using the juice from the canned fruit), once set pour on the custard and then cream and chocolate shavings! ! Yum - must make a trifle soon!
