  1. Do your trifles travel well? I don't have to go too far, but would like to take one-either the Eastery Cadbury or the Oreo Mint (my daughter is campaigning for that one) and I am afraid that the whipped cream will get runny.

    1. The Cadbury does not have whipped cream in it. The white is marshmallow and it would travel very well. The green top is whipped cream, but you could add that once you get to your destination or whip it firm. Both of those would be excellent choices and will both travel well. Thank you and have a fabulous time!
