A lot of people might be wondering, Fruit Trifle… what’s the big deal with that!? This recipe is something that we have seen being made in our homes for a long time by Moms and sisters, not to forget, it’s also a very common dessert at a lot of Pakistani weddings. My recipe uses almost all the same ingredients that are conventionally used in this recipe, however, the assembling is a little different, which gives it a very unique and delicious taste.

I used cake that I baked myself at home; you can use plain vanilla cake, which is conveniently available at bakeries everywhere, mostly in foils. Rest of the ingredients are pretty straight-forward and easy to find.

Its a tried and tested recipe and a must-try for all my young followers. The same basic idea coupled with your creativity can result in different looks for your recipe; the choices for decoration are unlimited! Do give it a try and let me know when people try out your dish and shower you with accolades for your creativity in cooking.
