We also found that there was way too much liquid and it was a little sloshy. My sister in law saved it by adding in some popping candy at the last minute to distract from this less than solid trifle!

Loved the flavour of this but found it was a little sloppy, although I put in more amarettis than stated. Perhaps it was me but there also seemed too much orange juice for the amount of biscuit. Despite these comments it still got well and truly eaten. I will try it again and modify it slightly, as it was easy to make and still looked great.

Loved this! Used far more raspberries though as we have loads in the freezer and no orange because I forgot to buy one! Still tasted great though!

Followed the recipe almost exactly and it was quick, and lovely.

Used Cassis instead of Raspberry coulis and it was lovely.
