prepare the marinated strawberries first. 
clean and hull the strawberries. 
slice them and sprinkle them with the sugar, then let macerate for around 5 minutes. 
pour the orange juice over the berries and let them marinate while you prepare the other parts of the trifle. you can also substitute orange or lemon liquor for the orange juice.
whip the cream until it forms stiff peaks. 
mix in the sugar. if you prefer your trifle very sweet, add more sugar.
place a third of the sliced sponge in a bowl. 
ladle a third of the marinated strawberries over the sponge, not forgetting to spoon the juice over the sponge to moisten it. 
spread a third of the whipped cream over the berries, followed by a third of the pistachios. layer everything two more times. 
or as an alternative, you can make the trifle in six individual serving dishes. 
decorate the top with fresh strawberries.
