    I want to make the banana choc. trifle from the newest SB.... if I make it around noon, will it still be good if refrigerated to serve around 4? we have to go "family hoping". I was going to wait to put the top layer of banana on until it is about to be served. I just worry about the other bananas... I am hoping the lemon juice will make it stay.
    Thanks!!

    yes it will keep, in fact I personally like this one better when it has been sitting.

    the lemon juice should work. I have found that using the lemon juice keeps any fruit from browning...even after you forgot there was a container with leftover whatever in it.

    Trifles are generally better when they sit for a couple of hours before serving than if they're served right away. The time allows the cake/cookie/brownie to soften and absorb the flavors from the pudding/custard/fruit.

    Lemon-lime soda (reg, not diet Sprite, 7-Up, etc) or pineapple juice will work well, too.
