Strawberry Lemon Trifle Recipe

Strawberry Lemon Trifle Recipe

"This refreshingly fruity dessert is one of our favorites," writes Lynn Marie Frucci of Pullman, Washington. "It looks so beautiful layered in a glass bowl that people will think you fussed. The secret is starting with a purchased angel food cake."
