I love finding Christmas leftovers!!! They're so much more decadent than the usual! I had a huge Christmas Cake left so decided to use some other pantry provisions to whip up a Kirsch black cherry & Christmas cake trifle!

  • Christmas cake to cover the bottom of your trifle bowl
  • 300 ml double cream
  • Kirsch soaked cherries (250g jar)
  • 300ml custard
  • Frozen fruits to top


  1. Break up the cake to cover your Trifle bowl. I used around 500gms for my family bowl

  2. Pour the Kirsch from the cherries over the cake to soak, leave whilst doing the next few steps.

  3. Whip the cream to form very soft peaks.

  4. Sprinkle the drained cherries over the cake so they're evenly distributed.

  5. Cover the cake and cherries with an even layer of custard.

  6. Lightly spread the custard with the cream.

  7. Place a few frozen berries on top to decorate.
