I have a BBQ tomorrow around noon, and I'm going to make a trifle with:

WASC cake
Magnolias famous banana pudding
I have some leftover raspberry Chambord buttercream that I'd love to through in.
Maybe some Chambord (raspberry liquor) whipped cream

So...can I put it all together tonight and expect it to be ok in the morning?

Anyone ever done one the night before?

uk trifle has jelly in it, so has to be made in advance, and is fine in the fridge for a while once its finished too. yours sounds a bit more adveturous in flavours, sounds good!

Thank you brincess. I know it's not the traditional Most people I know don't know what a trifle is, so I'm pretty safe in that regard.

So is the jelly to keep the cake from becoming too moist? Or just for flavor?

we line th bowl with cake, then fill with the jelly and leave to set, so the cake absorbs a wee bit of the jelly too, and is very very moist! i actually dotn like trifle tho, soggy cake, cold custard, blech! i pick out the jelly, and the cream on top!

Ok, there it is, I'll garnish the top in the morning so it doesn't bleed. Thank you for your help.

I probably could have used a little more pudding in the bottom, oh well. I skipped the bananas, didn't think they would do well overnight.

Too late now for my 2 cents--I have made a lot of trifles and would have waited--especially with the fresh fruit. I'm anxious to hear how it held up, it's beautiful in the pictures!
