I modified this recipe to make an easy trifle for my cooking class. The results are fantastic!!! This is definitely the class favorite! Try making it with other seasonal fruits...it's great with fresh peaches!

This is a wonderful trifle, enjoyed by all. Our little store didn't have frozen pound cake so I made from scratch using Recipe #63625 which worked out fine. I only had one pkg. of cream cheese so went with it and added another cup of Cool Whip. It still tasted rich and lovely. In fact, next time I will just use the one, save a few calories (although the cake did not save any!!). I am having a hard time not opening the fridge and digging into the leftovers. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Charmie. Made for ZWT - Xtra Hot Dishes.
