Three Berry Summer Trifle

This is no trifling matter. First, you make homemade raspberry jam. Then you spend two days looking for locally baked ladyfingers. I eventually had to substitute pound cake from the bakery, cut it up and toasted it in the oven. Pick up blueberries, raspberries and strawberries. Then you make hand whipped cream and finally start building the dessert.
Scratch made dessert and sketches
I have to say that it requires steel clad reserves of self control to maintain a stoic artistic detachment while sketching this project. I am surrounded by sweet, warm oven smells, raspberry and strawberry perfume and bowls piled to the top with fluffy mounds of whipped cream. Aargh! The agony and the ecstasy!
