Leftover Cake Trifle

Leftover Cake Trifle
The Trifles, these beautiful desserts, served in glasses with alternating layers of different ingredients and flavors, is the most sophisticated form of exploitation of a Cake or Easter Brioche that just ran out, not consumed and do not want to throw away. Besides trifles we can utilize, making small chocolate truffles and a coating-camouflage to show us renewed as a new dessert at all insignificant.
A slightly wet cake or Easter Tsoureki or Cookies are ideal to absorb moisture and flavors from other ingredients which it is paired. With a pastry cream, whipped cream and our favorite sweets create a delicious dessert!
