When life hands you lemons...

... make a Lemon Strawberry Trifle!
I just about cried when my pound cake turned out so thoroughly destroyed. (OK, maybe not actual tears, but visions of flinging it out the window took a couple spins around the dance floor in my head.) I would blame it on the pan, but the Honey Cake I made turned out just fine!

We were going to serve slices of cake topped with strawberries and lemon creme. Instead, we just mixed it all up together! I have to credit this idea to a wonderful lady I met in college. She is an amazing cook--- one of those kitchen MacGyvers who can look at a pantry full of ingredients and create something gourmet without batting an eye. She always used to say that the best thing you could do with a dry, crumbly, or (in my case) broken cake was turn it into a trifle. It sure beats choking it down with a jug of milk or flinging it out a window.

  1. Ooooh... LOVE trifle!

    I have a few recipes, one that is "healthy" and one that is exceedingly decadent (tiramisu!) and then a few easy ones....

    I finally got myself a trifle bowl after always making it in a regular (but nicely painted) bowl. Yours looks scrumptious!
