Mango Trifle




Mango Trifle ~ a light and refreshing dessert to round up a sumptuous X'mas dinner.  Basically, there's no recipe for this, no hard and fast rule, you just load on what you have at hand, layer by layer, sponge cake or any leftover cake, custard, jam, fruits, whipped cream, whatever you can think of.  Drench it with more alcohol if you want to be intoxicated during this festive season! 









I made this in small dessert cups so there's no excuse to refuse such a colourful and delightful dessert!  You won't say 'No' to this, would you??

Soy Sauce Chicken ~ 豉油鸡
