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.
