Chocolate Raspberry Creme Trifle Recipe @pinch

We love a trifle, and this chocolate raspberry cream trifle is as delicious as it is beautiful. There are layers and layers of yumminess with tart raspberries, sweet cream, and chocolate cake. It's rich, and a little will go a long way. This will easily feed a crowd and be a hit whenever served. I was just notified that this took the grand prize of the online recipe club, Love of Foods, for their Mother's Day contest. I was in the mood to make a trifle, so I asked my sweetie if he wanted a raspberry trifle or a chocolate one. Then I thought well why not make both? This is what I came up with. This is not so much baking as assembling, and is very easy, yet makes a spectacular presentation. A little raspberry liquor or kirsch sprinkled on the cake layers is very nice indeed, but optional.
