    If you are looking for a perfect dessert  for the hot summer days, this layered berry trifle is one recipe, that can be mastered and whipped up quickly. A perfect crowd pleaser, this dessert works for those days when you are entertaining a group of people over dinner. It refrigerates great and tastes equally delicious if made ahead and stored. With whipped cream tackling the sweet and slightly tart flavor of the berries, and the zest of lemon bringing in a nice acidity to balance out the sweetness, the dessert is a perfect balance of flavors.

    Add fruits of your choice in place of the berries for a variation and the dessert tastes as awesome as it is meant to be. Apricot, plums and peaches make a great substitute for the berries, bringing out a nice peachy flavor to the dessert.
