oneFlourless Chocolate Cake or brownie recipe, cut into small cubes
1 tablespoon vanilla sugar

Soak, wash and dry strawberries well.
Using a paring knife, create one strawberry rose for each mini trifle. For each rose, slice thin petals from close to the top of the strawberry from to close to bottom of the strawberry. Gently curl each petal toward the outside. Continue to slice petals all around the perimeter of the strawberry, overlapping slightly and curling them outward.
Dice the rest of the strawberries.
Whip the cream with vanilla sugar.
In clear glass or plastic cup, alternate layers of brownie cubes, strawberries and whipped cream. Dry to drop the cream into the cup without touching the sides. Gently shake the cup on the counter to settle the whipped cream.
Garnish the top of each mini trifle with a strawberry rose and/or a decorative cookie.
Kosher laws disallow the eating of any whole insects and therefore strawberries require a process of soaking, rinsing and in some cases, pureeing. Kashrut authorities differ somewhat on the proper checking of strawberries and some disallow the eating of strawberries, altogether. This blog was not designed to be your kosher authority, so please consult your local rabbinic authority regarding the use of strawberries.
