It is a busy Saturday for me. Yesterday was my sister's birthday. Melanie is the youngest in the family and she turns 21 this year so it's a big birthday affair. For weeks we have been figuring the best form of celebration for her and it's finally decided that we're going to have a birthday hi-tea for her and her friends in a hotel here.
So this year, since no home cooking is involved, there is no need for me to look up great birthday recipes from my Birthday Cookbooks to prepare a special birthday dessert for the party. I usually buy something for the party but this year since it's her 21st birthday, I was contemplating on making a Strawberry Trifle!
Trifle is pretty easy to make and it does not require the usage of kitchen appliances like an oven, blender, much less a Stand Mixer! Like I've mentioned in one of my older posts, I do not own an oven. I only have a microwave oven in my kitchen so my baking and cooking-for-party skills are limited because of this. Perhaps that is one of the reasons I constantly turn to Trifles when dessert is needed for a dinner party or family celebration. I do enjoy cooking quick easy recipes!
Anyway, I found a Berry Trifle recipe online, which I simply have to try soon. It looks easier to make than the traditional English trifle and it looks berry-licious too!
Happy Birthday to Mel once again and I will take some pictures of our hi-tea later this afternoon to share with you. Happy weekend!
