    I'm looking for a dessert recipe to demo for a group of 20+, that will appeal to both male and female guests. My hostess would like to use seasonal fruit, loves to bake, and all the men are cooks who are very interested in the knives. I am not really into sweets and do not have very much experience with sweet recipes. In my family, the men only like cookies and brownies, not really into "fancy" desserts. I welcome suggestions and hints.Thanks. How about the Summer Berry Shortcakes? Is that a recipe that would appeal to both sexes? That uses a lot of tools and fits the bill. Any other ideas?

    A trifle would be good! They are easy to make, taste great and look good too.

    You can do something berry, something chocolate or perhaps a mixture of both. You could make two (even if you only have one trifle bowl you can make one ahead in something else).

    It always looks impressive and is easy!

    My husband loves trifles. There are always several when we have gatherings at church and the guys seem to love them just as much as the women.

    My DH and DS LOVE the Chocolate Peanut Butter Trifle, and the Red, White & Blueberry Trifle too.
