Here’s what you’ll need:

1 Clear Glass for Every Guest

Pound or Sponge Cake (A 1lb cake will serve 6 guests)

Whipped Cream

Orange Sauce (or any other sauce you love; caramel, chocolate, etc.)

Orange Ice Cream (or any flavor you love)

How to Make It

First, layer a slice of sponge or pound cake into the glass. Then, place the orange sauce on top generously. Add a layer of ice cream and then top that off with a layer of whipped cream. You’ll continue to layer the ingredients in the glass until it’s full. You want to cover the top of the glass with clear plastic wrap if you plan to store it in the freezer for a while.

Garnishing the Dish

You can make the dish look extra special with a little garnish. Use a fresh mint sprig for citrusy trifle dishes and you can use shaved chocolate for chocolate and caramel trifle dishes. This one is really delicious and you can literally use any kind of ingredient you want. Substitute pie crust for the cake and use pie filling instead of ice cream.
