Darling Buds of May moment

Every now and then I get a Ma Larkin moment. She is the character in the wonderful series the "Darling Buds of May", adapted from the books written by H.E.Bates. She loves to cook for her large and boisterous family and they all sit down together to enjoy her efforts.
I went into the garden this morning and picked a heap of lovely ripe raspberries and used them in this trifle. I whipped lots of yellow Jersey
cream and crystalized some rose petals and lemon balm leaves to use as decoration. The final flourish had to be glitter of course. Edible gold leaf which I bought in a tiny vial.
Love,love,love trifle!
