Pumpkin Mousse Trifle

I hope everyone had a nice relaxing Thanksgiving. Isn't this a wonderful picture I took of this trifle? I'd like to say I'm getting so much better a photographing food but this pic is actually stolen from Rachael Ray's website along with the recipe.
My pictures were too crappy for even my standards. And as it happens, I think this trifle is too. Which is too bad cause I was planning to take this for potluck at work this next week.
It just tasted like something was missing. I'm not sure what. And, even with the whipped cream topping it only came up about 2/3 of the way up the sides of the trifle bowl.
Fortunately I did have a plan B...a Marie Callendar's pumpkin pie. And that girl knows what she's doing with her pies!
So, what should I take for potluck now? Any suggestions?

I am so sorry your trifle didn't turn out. It looks like it should have been a wonderful recipe. Mrs. Ray and myself don't always get along on all of her recipes. Good thing you had Plan B! What kind of dessert did you have in mind for your potluck? Something pumpkin? Just something big?

I'm not sure what I have in mind for the potluck. We'll eat just about anything there. Chocolate is pretty popular.

Apple crisp - you can make as much as you like and everyone loves it. Add vanilla ice cream :)

Julie said...

Mmm...that sounds good. Got a recipe?

It looks really good. Don't feel bad my stuff never tastes or looks anything like the pictures.

Isn't it great to always have a plan B.
