So I gathered up some of my favorite fruits in Olympic colors - blueberries, pineapple, blackberries, green grapes, and raspberries.
|Thank you to my friend who suggested cool whip|
to represent the white background on the Olympic flag!
|What a delicious mess!|
|As suggested by a friend, I added|
an Olympic chainmaille bracelet
to the bottom of the trifle bowl for a
decorative touch. An identical bracelet
is available at StringtownBeads.
So why would I want to share such a catastrophe? I wasn't striving for
perfection. I was striving for my personal best and I achieved that. This is why I can say this dessert turned out exactly the way I wanted it to.
Now, while I believe in striving for one's personal best, I also believe in personal growth. This is why I am asking you how you think I can improve this recipe and make it better next time. Less cool whip and more fruit? Is there a technique you use when making layered recipes like this one? I am a beader, not a chef, so I don't know the tricks of the trade in the kitchen. Please share your thoughts below and next time I can make this Imperfect Olympic Trifle Fruit Salad even better.
