      This was so good! I only used about half the powdered sugar as suggested, and I'm glad. It was plenty sweet. I loved the almond flavoring on the fruit. Instead of angel food cake, I used a sour cream pound cake by Paula Deen. It was fabulous!

      This was excellent and I will definitely make again next year. Everyone loved it and many came back for seconds. It was difficult to make the layers look nice as the cream cheese layer tends to spread out. I will try harder next year and do thicker fruit layers.

      I omitted the almond extract as my husband is allergic. I added extra vanilla extract instead. I also made it much healthier by using only one cup of confectioner's sugar in the cream cheese layer. Two cups seems excessive. I also did not add ANY sugar to the fruit. Strawberries and blueberries are naturally sweet enough that they don't need added sugar.

      Made this for 4th of July 2012. Worth the time and effort, a hit. A large trifle bowl was nearly devoured at the bbq we attended. I also didn't use the almond, I wanted the fresh fruit flavor to shine and it did. Did cut the powdered sugar in half and probably could of gotten away with only 1/2. Will be a keeper for sure.
