Mini Trifle

 I found these adorable little cordial or stemmed shot glasses at the charity shop.  There were only 7 of them so they were a bargain.  I took one look at them and immediately thought Trifle Bowl!  OK maybe I thought of my sour cherry liqueur first.. but then it was all trifle. 

I made a cheater version for a meeting last night.

I started with a tiny angel food cake.  The one I bought was cream filled which was not my intention.  I was able to cut the cake from around the outside.  I brushed the cubed pieces with some orange liqueur.  

I put a small amount of pudding (true confessions... it was pre-made lunch pack vanilla pudding.  I wasn't going to make an entire batch of pudding for 7 shot glasses!)  The cake was layered on top.  Finish up with more pudding and a raspberry. 

After the first one, I started cutting the cake into smaller cubes.  The tiny cubes of cake fit into the glasses better and were easier to consume with the tiny spoons.  I also put a half a raspberry in the middle to give it some more flavor. 

For future reference.  I'd use a quality pudding.  The cake and liqueur worked well.  Raspberries are the perfect size for these little trifles.  Chopped strawberries would be tasty, but maybe not a pretty.  These trifles would work well in shot glasses. 

Now for the question.  Does anyone have any idea what the pattern is for these little glasses?  They are 2 1/4 inches tall and just over 1 1/2 inch in diameter.  They are similar to the Karin pattern produced by Dansk.  However, I can't find any image of this specific size and shape.  Leave your leads in the comments.
