    Chef Shelby's Note:

    I make trifles all the time for large gatherings like my DD soccer team parties. The kids (and adults)always gobble it down. There's so many variations but this is a fun way to welcome in the Spring season or for an April's Fool Dessert.

      Layer 1 Once the cake is cooled cut into squares (makes it easier to crumble) and start to crumble it for you first layer. Note: Only for this first layer of cake, press into the bottom of the bowl.
    4. 4
      Layer 2 Mix chocolate pudding according to package directions (don't let it set because it can just be poured over the cake layer easier).

      Very simple to make and delicious too! My father-in-law mentioned that you could basically use any kind of pudding or cake. It's a very versatile recipe. I think if I make it again, I will add crushed oreos for the last layer.
