The Bird’s brand is best known for its original homemade custard powder, invented by Alfred Bird in 1837 and still loved by generations today. Yet the range of instant desserts stretches wider, with semolina, Dream Topping and a seasonal range of trifles and Christmas sauces too.
Bird's custard powder brings you custard just the way you like it and there's no feeling quite like making your own.
Bird's Dream Topping is a great standby to have in the cupboard. It stays firm after whipping unlike cream and has hundreds of uses from trifle topping to simply serving with fruit.
Rum and Brandy sauces are essential extras for the Festive dinner table, but you don't have to wait a year to get stuck into the trifle. Available in Strawberry and Raspberry, these little packets have all you need to create your very own trifle whenever you fancy it.
