This was a hit with my book club. Beautiful presentation and delicious. I love that it uses real homemade whipped cream and isn’t overly sweet. The angel food cake holds it sponginess and the texture is perfect with the Light creaminess of the pudding. The only change I made was to add a Tablespoon of sugar to the sliced berries To bring out the juices. I sliced, sugared the berries and left them in the refrigerator overnight. In the morning I made the whipped cream and pudding and assembled. This made it quick to put together in the morning. I then refrigerated the trifle for 2 hours before serving. Lynne

My family and I loved this! I adapted it to be sugar-free by using a Pillsbury sugar-free yellow cake mix. I used a small amount of powdered sugar (regular) to lightly sweeten the whipped cream, however, along with vanilla. It was a hit, even to the kids! No one knew it was sugar-free until I told them!

An easy, light and refreshing dessert. The orange peel in the whipped cream/pudding mixture is delicious.

The preparation was so easy and resulted in a delicious dessert that looked fabulous for our family Christmas get together. I defrosted about a cup of frozen strawberries and sprinkled them with a tablespoon of sugar. I put this on the bottom just to add some sweetness and my daughter said that she really liked this addition. The top of the dessert was not white like in the picture so next time I would cover the top with canned whipped cream to give it a better finish. This will be my go to dessert for a crowd from now on!

This was incredibly easy to make. The star of the show was the pudding mixture. Who knew that sour cream could make such a difference! This was my first time ever making a strawberry trifle and it was so good that both of my kids had seconds. I made the angel food cake from scratch and while that was being prepared, I sliced and marinated the strawberries in sugar/water. The trifle cream is not very sweet so I wanted to make sure the strawberries were super sweet. Now I know what I'll be making for potlucks and holidays!
