Reviews forRaspberry Cheesecake Trifle
"I also forgot to mention we prefer the French vanilla cake mix by Pillsbury."
"My previous post did not let me put in the 5 stars"
"My family has actually made this recipe many times and LOVE it. We prefer more of the cream so we actually double the recipe on the cream cheese,whipping cream, & powdered sugar portion. It's not overly sweet and so delicious. The only thing I add is some vanilla extract to the cream cheese."
"I have made this recipe several times and it has always gotten great reviews. I do make a few changes.When I am in a hurry, I just buy a store made angel food cake. I always use strawberries and I like white chocolate instead of semisweet. Which ever chocolate you use, put it in the freezer first. It is so much easier to shave."
"I tried this recipe for Mother's Day. It was sooo good! I could not decide between raspberries or blueberries so I ended up doing it with both berries. Also, I did not make the cake, I bought angel cake instead. The result was a delicious Red, White, and Blue dessert that I will definitively do again for the 4th of July!!!"
"It's the same trifle recipe, using blueberries instead."
"There's another trifle pictured behind the Raspberry Cheesecake Trifle. Is that recipe available?"
"I DO love to cook! I think you misinterpreted my review. I don't think it was too hard (or 'work'). I really enjoyed making it. It's just that my OPINION is that it didn't taste that great. =)"
"Unlike the last reviewer I dont see where any part of it is 'hard work'. I did not make the cake from scratch, or have to cut up any fruit.The cream took about 5 minutes.I guess they are used to just buying ready made stuff.I thought this tasted very good and will make it again. Then again I like to cook so it isnt 'work' to me."
"WAY too much effort to make an ok dessert. It's something you would make to look pretty, but I don't care about pretty since I'm just cooking for my family."
