    I'm going to bring a trifle already made to my next show...how far ahead can I make it? It would be ideal if I could make it the day before, or at the latest, the early morning of the show....
    I'm leaning towards the Strawberry Cheesecake right now.

    I have always made a Death by Chocolate Trifle the DAY OF a show. It would be too mushy to be made the day before.

    I have made the Strawberry Trifle the night before and it is still good the next day. Not soggy at all.

    sorry - I meant the Death by Chocolate Trifle would be soggy if made the day before.

    I think the Strawberry Trifle would be great!

    Amara - would you make a salad for a make-ahead trifle - that is always an option too!

    Amara~

    That is my FAVORITE trifle, and it will do fine if you make it the night before and let it sit!!

    Thanks everyone!

    I'm kind of making a lot of food for this one special friend/host, so I wanted to save time and make the trifle ahead.

    I'll probably make it the morning of the show.
