  1. Stir together orange juice, eggs and sugar in a small saucepan. Place over low heat then stir constantly until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture is very thick. Once thick, strain mixture into a large bowl and stir in butter cubes until melted. Cover and refrigerate until cold, about 2 hours.
  2. Fold whipped cream into cold egg mixture until smooth. Cover and refrigerate for 3 hours.
  3. To assemble, place half of the cubed sponge cake into the bottom of a trifle bowl. Spoon on half of the whipped cream mixture and sprinkle with half of the Mandarin oranges. Create a second layer with the remaining sponge cake, whipped cream mixture and Mandarin oranges. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
