So the recipe I'd found was this one from The Pioneer Woman blog. I'm not gonna lie: hers looks far and away prettier than mine does. No surprises there. That's just how these things work. However, I did take her tip that the layers show up best when you concentrate stuff at the sides of your dish/bowl. What a useful tool Teh Interwebz is: I just wanted to find a nice way to use my trifle dish!

|behold, your tasty ingredients; thoughtfully prepared in advance.|
And there you have it. Now all I have to do is get this, napkins, plates, cutlery, a few 2-litres of lemonade, and Ethan all safely transported in my car. Oh, did I mention I'm driving to Reading and back first to drop off the Husband so he can help with boys' camp? Yeah: tonight is going to be fun. Once we've survived, I'll let you know, because tomorrow we're off to attend Ethan's first birthday party for a friend. This reminds me of the weeks I have to get my act together and put together a little something, party-wise. Not that Ethan will care, so long as he gets some ice cream. I love a guy who's easy to please.
