Excellent! I made a few changes after my husband said it was a "little heavy". I used real whipping cream. After whipping and after preparing the pudding according to the box I gently folded the two together. I also used fresh strawberries. I then placed the cubed angel food caked in the bottom, then whip cream and pudding mixture followed by freshly sliced strawberries and continuing for 2 more layers. I topped the last layer of strawberries with freshly whipped lightly sweetened cream and garnished the top with uncut strawberries. I got rave reviews! It was light, simple and a perfect change from heavy desserts! BRAVO!!!

I used cheesecake flavored pudding (SO good!!) and real whipped cream with a touch of vanilla and sugar, insted of Cool Whip. This is a show stopper!


I made this for 4th of July. YUMMY and Beautful in my trifle bowl. I did make a few changes. I used 1 pint of real whipped cream and whipped it fluffy/stiff in my mixer and added about 3 to 4T of sugar to sweeten it and used in place of the frozen whipped topping. I also used lady fingers in place of the angel food cake. And to keep with the 4th theme, I used fresh strawberries and a row of fresh blueberries(instead of bananas) in the middle. I know I changed a lot of the recipe but I thank T's Mom for inspiring me!
