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.
