A great trifle is all about distinct layers. This is no exception. There’s a cloud of elderflower-spiked whipped cream to draw out the layers of fresh summer berries, and crushed cookies, which soak up the berry juices until they’re perfectly soft. With only five ingredients, the result is a gorgeous sculptural delight. Trifles are a classic English dessert, so put on your best British accent and serve this garden party style. P.S. If elderflower isn’t your jam, you can substitute Grand Marnier or keep it booze-free with a dash of vanilla extract and lemon zest.
