I made this recipe in the summer for a graduation party. It was simple to put together and looked lovely in my new trifle bowl. My concern was it had a lot of competition in the dessert department including cupcake trees, pies, cookies, etc. In the end, my trifle was devoured! Everyone loved it and someone even asked for the recipe. Luckily I had a print out that I handed to her! I'm going to make it again for Christmas because it's delicious and easy! I also love that you can sub sugar-free pudding and fat free cool whip without anyone noticing the difference. What a fantastic recipe! Trifles are my new favorite dessert!
