How Long is Trifle Good?
When you make a trifle, it should be stored in the refrigerator. It will last up to 3 days. The longer the trifle sits, it will become more watery and the cake will get soggy.
Do You Use Fresh or Frozen Berries in a Trifle?
I like using fresh blueberries in the trifle but you can also use frozen berries. If you want to use frozen berries, be sure to let them thaw them completely. Once the berries are thawed, make sure to dry them well.
