A friend posted a picture of a beautiful red, white and blue trifle she was making for Memorial Day. Trifle is soooo good and very pretty. Just the perfect thing to take to a party! I purchased an actual "Trifle" bowl years ago and have gotten lots of use out of it. It's a great way to show off the beautiful layers. Of course, a small punch bowl or other glass bowl will work too. Now, the picture to the left, isn't a picture of my trifle, but I couldn't find one on my drive. This one will have to do.
3 boxes of instant french vanilla pudding (3.4 oz)
1 frozen Sara Lee Pound Cake
2 small tubs of Cool Whip (extra creamy)
2 pts. of fresh strawberries sliced
1. Follow recipe on box for pudding except substitute 1 cup of Cool Whip for 1 cup of milk (e.g. the recipe calls for 2 c. of milk, use 1 c. of milk and 1 c. of Cool Whip)
2. Slice pound cake thinly
3. Layer cake in a trifle bowl first, followed by pudding, followed by strawberries
4. Continue with the layers until about 1 inch from the top. Top with Cool Whip and decorate with a whole strawberry.
You can also use peaches, blueberries, raspberries and/or pineapples.
