To show off the layers of cake, berries, and custard, a straight-sided glass dish is best. If you do not have a trifle dish, get creative. Use a clear glass bowl or cookie jar. Or make individual trifles in wine glasses, tumblers, or jam jars.
A dense spicy gingerbread is torn and evenly distributed over the Lemon-White Chocolate Sauce in this trifle. Other options for the cake layer are crumble cookies, lady fingers, brownies, or sweet corn bread.
For the final layer, a dollop of whipped cream adds extra richness to the dessert. For a boost of flavor and for a bit of flare, candied ginger strips are sprinkled over the whipped cream. Serve the trifle right away, or refrigerate until ready to serve (up to overnight).
