Chocolate Raspberry Trifle
The day Rose's Heavenly Cakes arrived, this Chocolate Raspberry Trifle is the very first page I saw. It stunned me. I have dreaded making this recipe because of my nemesis, namely genoise. Surprisingly enough, today there were no hidden flour balls and it rose to the required height. The rest was, as they say, a piece of cake. The remaining components took quite a bit of time and loads of stirring, but they were not difficult steps. The custard alone would make this recipe worthwhile. Eldest granddaughter not only did a happy cake dance over the trimmed bits of cake, but declared she'd like to jump into a swimming pool of custard.
