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


  • STEP 1
    Break up the cake to cover your Trifle bowl. I used around 500gms for my family bowl
  • STEP 2
    Pour the Kirsch from the cherries over the cake to soak, leave whilst doing the next few steps.
  • STEP 3
    Whip the cream to form very soft peaks.
  • STEP 4
    Sprinkle the drained cherries over the cake so they're evenly distributed.
  • STEP 5
    Cover the cake and cherries with an even layer of custard.
  • STEP 6
    Lightly spread the custard with the cream.
  • STEP 7
    Place a few frozen berries on top to decorate.
