A big Thank you!!!!
Please shower your comments, like my recipe, share my recipe, and that kind act of yours is more than sufficient for me!!
"Trifle" in English cuisine means, sponge cake, fruits, custard and jelly all layered as we wish. I made this totally vegetarian by using an eggless sponge cake and also a  vegetarian jelly by using china grass aka agar agar, which is derived from algae. Since gelatine contains fish bones, vegetarians will certainly mind this kind of jelly.
It is better, we make this trifle pudding the previous day and allow it to rest over night in the refrigerator.
Toppings are optional.

Eggless sponge cake - 500 gms
Fresh cream - 1 cup

 For the fruits layer
Bananas - 3
Oranges - 2, peeled and pith and skin cleaned
Apples - 2
Strawberry - 10
Fresh pineapple - 6 slices
Honey - 3 tbsps
Vanilla essence - 1 tsp

For the custard layer
Milk - 4 cups
Custard powder - 6 tbsps
Vanilla essence - 1 tsp
Sugar - 4 tsps

For jelly layer
China grass - 1/4 cup, powdered
Sugar - 2 tsp
Fresh orange juice - 2 cups
Water - 1 cup

For topping
Grated chocolate - 1/2 cup
Blue berries - a few
Cherries - a few

Previous day, boil milk, add the custard powder diluted with water or cold milk, mix and bring to a boil, add sugar and vanilla essence, cool and refrigerate.

These are the china grass strands

Bring 1 cup water to boiling point, add the powdered china grass, when it becomes frothy, add sugar

Squeeze out the fresh orange juice, now add this to the above switched off agar agar/china grass mixture, and within 2 hours, in room temperature itself, it will set, as shown in the below picture.

These are the various fruits cut and ready, honey is added to this.

and mixed well

Take a clean glass bowl, wet with water, then place the first layer of cut sponge cake, and cover with a layer of custard, which would have by now set in the fridge.

Now layer the fruits

Now the jelly

Cover with cake layer again, and repeat the layers.

Top it up with the final layer of fresh cream

Sprinkle the grated chocolate

Now, decorate with cherries and blue berries

After it is well set, cut into slices and serve
