"Good recipe and I have been making various types of trifles for many years as my family is from England. Great thing about trifle is you can do so many things with it! I do have a few suggestions. I suggest using strawberries, sliced bananas, and thawed, undrained frozen blueberries. Why frozen? The juice from the thawed blueberries will absorb into the cake. Next suggestion is for Angel Food cake instead of pound cake. It is fat free and will absorb the juices better. I also use vanilla pudding and don't add sour cream or condensed, just 2% per box directions. I layer with cake pieces, then blueberries (with juice), then pudding, then strawberries and bananas, then whipped cream then repeat. I have also done sugar-free pudding and sugar-free whipped cream for a super diet friendly dessert and know one even new!"

"I made it with strawberries and blueberries. Turned out really well. It took some maneuvering to get everything to fit in the springform pan, but overall it was pretty easy to make.

And everyone loved it. Even the folks who don't like dessert loved it."

"I made this for the 4th, big hit! I put it in a trifle bowl instead and used angel food cake and vanilla pudding. Also left out raspberries because the store I stopped at was out. Everyone really liked it!"

"This was pretty good! I made it in the mason jars like it was shown in the magazine. I'm curious to try it with vanilla pudding like another reviewer did."

"I really liked the taste of this trifle! I had the June/July Taste of Home in my car and quickly read over the recipe and went into the grocery store to pick up the items I needed. Well, I bought FRENCH VANILLA pudding instead of lemon (an accident!) and the fresh raspberries were SO EXPENSIVE that I simply bought a bag of frozen blackberries, blueberries and raspberries and used those instead. All I have to say is WOW!!!! The French Vanilla "accident" was incredible...I was worried the flavor would be too sweet on top of the berries but it was delicious! I love that this dessert doesn't feel heavy but rather light. I made a few "mini" trifles to share with my neighbors and they loved them as well. Definitely going to add this one to my "dessert box""
