Reviews for Cappuccino Mousse Trifle
"My daughter begged me to make this for her birthday. It was easy to make and a big hit at the party."
"This was very good. As specified, easy to make, looks good and tastes good. Would make it again."
"Fantastic tasting, easy trifle to make. Will definitely making again."
"I have nade this several times and it is always a big hit! If you don't think there is enough of the filling you can always just get a small container of cool whip for the top of the trifle and use all of what is in the larger container for the filling. I have never had trouble with the recipe as is! I have several friends who don't like coffee flavor anything and go back for seconds with this one!"
"Not enough "mousse" for the rest of the recipe. In fairness - cappuccino is not my favorite trifle flavor..... No, will not make it again."
"I have not made this yet, as I just came across the recipe. Looks and sounds incredible! I'd make one change and use a chocolate pound cake."
"This is absolutely wonderful! Tastes out of this world and looks amazing too. I took it to a church picnic and even those that don't like coffee loved this."
"This is the first trifle I've every made and my family loved it. It is so easy. My niece said that it taste like a dessert you would be sitting in a restaurant eating."
"Very good and so easy, nice change from fruit. E.L.C."
