When I bake, I make a lot of mess. Today is one of those days... it is too stormy to go walking but nice to be home and dry.
My project today was to make a trifle. I got out my new footed bowl and proceeded to make dirty dishes!! A bowl of butterscotch pudding was stirred up. i baked a mini spice cake in the toaster oven. I sliced 15 mini apples that were too small to do much else with them. One packet of Dream Whip was at the ready. (Look at those dirty bowls, spoons, mixer paddles... sigh.)
I layered cubes of spice cake into the footed bowl. Two cups of diced apple was the next layer. I sprinkled some liqueur onto the broken up cake. The liqueur had an elephant on it. Very imported.
I added a layer of butterscotch pudding and pressed some large walnut pieces around the edge facing out. Time for the rest of the little cake. One cup of diced apple. Add pudding layer. Le fini is the Dream Whip. Something about finishing with a cloud top is just elegant.
My friends are coming over for dinner and I will bring out this layered beauty for a few ooohs and ahhhhhs before we scoop the contents into more dessert bowls.
Because I need more dishes to wash, right?
