Panettone Trifle

Panettone Trifle:  This is such a great way to put together a quick dessert and use all that Panettone that everyone brings over!  I usually have tons of my easy Custard cream leftover around the holidays, so I added that for some yummy velvety texture, but you can also just use whipped cream if you're in a pinch. The ingredients are simple and you can always swap out any fruits or nuts to fit your palate. I did a little taste testing to figure out which liquor tasted best with the Panettone (poor me!) and found that the sweetness of the Marsala wine really brought out the flavors of the cake. You can also substitute with some Rum or Sweet Vermouth Bianco, if you can find it.
If you don't own a Trifle bowl, don't sweat it! A regular bowl will work just fine.
