I usually serve this in summer when fresh berries are bountiful, but I recently prepared it with frozen cherries and light cherry pie filling instead. It was a delicious glimpse of summer-to-come! —Brenda Paine of North Syracuse, New York

"Delicious. Made this for my children when they were young and now making it for their children already in college. Sometimes they want me to substitute cherry pie filling for the fruit."

"It was a hit at the party at work, today! But, one suggestion, double the recipe for all but the cake and fruit. I was finding the pudding blend and the whipped topping were sparse when I got to the top layer, so I ended up using a 2nd tub of Cool Whip at the top. Was still deeee-lish!"

"I made this trifle for my husband's retirement party. Several guests watch their sugar and calorie intake so a light dessert was in order. I used fresh sliced strawberries and blueberries. My bowl would not accommodate all the layers but it was easy enough to adjust accordingly. There were two other desserts available but the trifle was completely cleaned out. What a delicious, light summer treat!"
