Can you refrigerate a trifle?

You can refrigerate a loosely covered trifle for up to a few days. After that, the cake will get too soggy from the cream and pudding.

Can you freeze a trifle?

No. There are too many elements in the desert to freeze well.

Can you make a trifle ahead of time?

You can make every part of the trifle ahead of time except for the whipped cream. Do not pour the Irish Cream into the cake or make the whipped cream until about an hour or two before serving.  You can then assemble the trifle, cover and refrigerate.

    Could not find Irish cream coffee creamer. Can I use regular Irish cream?

    1. Melissa

      Yes! The only thing to note is that Irish Cream usually contains liquor. If that’s not a problem, then I think it would be a delicious replacement. If you don’t want the liquor, then the ingredients for Irish Cream (Creamer) contains a mixture of heavy cream, milk, sugar, espresso, vanilla and almond extract, and cocoa powder

    I couldn’t locate Irish cream coffee creamer so I used Italian cream and a teaspoon of espresso powder for the soak and added a bit to the whipped cream. I also used stemless wineglasses instead of a trifle bowl. Everyone loved them. The only complaint I heard was that the glasses were too large, so the portions to generous – but they ate every bite!

      That’s awesome! And, a great tip for anyone that can’t find the Irish Cream Coffe Creamer. Thank you for sharing!
