trifle bowl (trahy-fuhl; try-full bohl) noun
A clear bowl within which the trifle is made and presented. A typical trifle bowl is clear glass with straight sides, sometimes angling outwardly slightly, perched on a pedestal. They usually hold between 10 and 12 cups in volume.
- Whatever trifle bowl you use, make sure it is clear so that you can see the layers of ingredients. We prefer plain glass to cut glass, as it allows for better viewing.
