"This was my first trifle to make and it was a hit with everyone. I prepared it as a desert for a Christmas party last year and even friends that were dieting could not resist it. I mixed diced mango into the mixture and added blackberries in addition to the strawberries. I also used vanilla yogurt instead of sour cream as suggested by another reviewer. I would use plain yogurt in the future as the flavored one made the trifle too sweet. Overall, this was a fruit filled, yummy desert."

"This recipe is absolutely delicious! I coated the strawberries in sugar just because the ones I bought were a bit tart. Then I added a bit of sugar to the whipped cream mixture because my family likes their desserts on the sweet side. Great recipe, will be making again."

"I recently made this for a church potluck. I was a bit disappointed when the bowl was scraped clean before I had a chance to get some. Definitely a winner!"

"This recipe is the BOMB! This was by far the best trifle recipe I've ever had. I did lighten it up a bit...non fat milk, lite sour cream, sugarless pudding, lite cool whip instead of whipped cream. I used pound cake instead of angel food which probably put some saved calories back in the recipe. No matter, this was THE BEST!"

"WOW.. I am more of a chocolate person but this was very good. The sour cream and orange peel gave it a different flare then just cool whip, pudding and strawberry's. I did use lady fingers and cool whip. ( :"
