Just this once, I will tell you some things about the future. Usually I would not do so because of the terrible, horrifying consequences that could result from disrupting the time line, but this dessert is really good. So keep it under your hats, but right after the cupcake phase has waned, puddings will rise. The recent history of above-average cakes and puddings will then lead naturally into a resurgence of the trifle.


I will let you in on this particular trifle recipe both because it is fantastically delicious, and because it seems to date back to right now. So that’s all right!



  • 2 large cans mandarin oranges
  • 1 small pkg. orange gelatin
  • 1 pint orange sherbet
  • 1 cup whip cream
  • 1 angel food cake, cubed





Drain 1 cup liquid from mandarin oranges.
Bring the liquid to a boil in the microwave. Add gelatin, and stir to dissolve. Cool until just warm. Add orange sherbet, and mix until melted. Gently fold in whipped cream.
Add one half of the cake cubes in the trifle dish in a tight layer. Add the orange mixture over the top of the cake cubes.
Add a thin layer of whipped topping. Add a layer of mandarin oranges.
Repeat the process. Refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving.
Bonus Garnish Tip:
For attractive orange curls, use strips of orange peel.
