This stunning fruit-filled trifle is a perfect make-ahead dessert for summer barbecues and dinner parties. Resist the urge to dig in until the trifle has chilled for at least a few hours--that time lets the flavors mingle and allows the cake to absorb the rum and fruit juices.
To make ahead: Prepare cake (Steps 1-2) and store airtight at room temperature for up to 1 day. Refrigerate trifle for up to 1 day.
