It seems to me, that last year, they had the recipes at their cooking stations. They may still have them, but they just aren't showing them to make it more dramatic.
I would think they would have to have a recipe for any baking competition....just because exact measurements are needed for a successful product.
I'm watching the first episode again and I noticed something really insignificant but a bit ridiculous. The "crowd gasp" sound effect which I've even heard on AGT this week. One of the opening scenes this season used it like three times in a minute.
Here's a link with various combinations of trifles people can try:

I think an English trifle may be different than what Americans consider one to be. Personally, I consider a "trifle" to be any kind of layered dessert - could be just berries and cream, could be bananas, pudding and nilla wafers, like AJane intimated, it's the "meatloaf" of desserts!

And when someone breaks our wings, we simply continue to fly...usually on a broomstick.
We are flexible like that.

Trifle's a great dessert to make and I'm not picky about what goes in it....so I didn't mind whether the ones on the show were traditional or not.
I like the angel food cake pieces in mine....but I'd try them all...fab dessert.
(darn...now I'm wanting one...and I just bought a bunch of strawberries at the farmer's market....guess I know what I'm making this weekend!)
ok, it's trifle for dessert tonight. lol! I also like it with angel food cake. My layers: angel food cake, strawberries and strawberry jello, cool-whip, angel food cake, bananas and vanilla pudding, cool whip. Mmmmm!
