Method

 

Prepare the trifle in individual glasses if desired.

1. Line a round glass dish with a flat bottom (a deep pie dish works well) with cake fingers. Sprinkle the sherry over and set aside so the cake can absorb the liquor.

2. cover the cake with half the fresh fruit. Cut larger pieces of fruit into thin slices. Cover with a layer of custard and scatter pecan nuts on top.

3. repeat the layers.

4. cover with clingfilm and chill until needed.

5. Whip together the cream and icing sugar until stiff peaks form. Fold the mascarpone into the sweetened cream and decorate the trifle with the mixture. (Stir the mascarpone to soften if very thick to make it easier to fold in.) Whip the cream and mascarpone mixture if not thick enough.

6. Sprinkle the crushed meringue on top and decorate with more fresh fruit and nuts. Serve.
