Food For Thought Tuesday: Pound Cake Trifle

 This dessert was actually the creation after a cooking fail. 

I was supposed to make a Strawberry Boston Cream Pie for dessert for Mother's Day. 

Let's just say I was a little too impatient and the cake didn't turn out well.

A run to costo for some pound cake, let to this creation:


Pound Cake Trifle. 

Pound Cake Trifle.

1 store bought pound cake. ( I bought mine at costco, but you can get the stuff in the freezer section too)
1 small box of French Vanilla Instant pudding
1 cup cream
1 cup milk
3 cups sliced strawberries
1 box danish dessert
Cool Whip

A couple hours before you are ready to serve your dessert, prepare Danish dessert according to package instructions.  Let cool in refrigerator. 
Prepare pudding with 1 cup milk and 1 cup cream and whisk.  Set in fridge until thick.  

Cube pound cake into bite sized pieces.

You could make one large trifle or do individual servings.  I did individual cups.

This is how I layered it:
Pudding

Strawberries

Cool Whip

We all loved how it turned out! It was really yummy and I will definitely be making this again in the future!
