This is a very light and tasty holiday trifle! It's perfect for holiday celebrations. I used white chocolate flavored instant pudding in place of the white chocolate. I added crushed peppermint candies in between the layers in addition to the top. I would recommend cutting the cake pieces small or using two cakes, since I didn't have enough cake for three layers.
