  • Author: Louise


Trifles come in many different forms – try this recipe for a scrumptious treat that looks lovely presented in glass jars.


  • 2 Swiss roll cakes with buttercream (I just bought from PicknPay)
  • 2 ½ cups strawberries, sliced into quarters
  • 250ml whipping cream


  1. Cut the Swiss Roll into thick slices (3-4cm thick) and use a round cookie cutter to punch circles in the slices of cake.
  2. Put the first layer of cake in the jar
  3. Place1/3 cup of strawberries on top of the cake
  4. Place 1/3 cup whipped cream on top of the strawberries.
  5. Now place more strawberries, then a piece of cake and finish off with cream and decorate with a strawberry/strawberries or even a cherry if you have. Other options include sprinkling with chocolate shavings.
  6. Best served immediately or within a few hours.
