    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This is one of the best trifles, angel food cake, fruit, and then a delicious light whipped fluff in between the layers, this is SO DELICIOUS!!!! This can be completely prepared well in advance and refrigerated until serving which makes this the perfect dessert to serve to guests. You can change the fruit to whatever you like and use whatever flavor pudding mix you like, you could use a chocolate angel food cake instead of the white. Make certain to soak the banana slices in the pineapple juice for about 5-8 minutes so they will not turn brown. This can really be layered anyway you desire, you will get rave reviews when you serve this to family or friends!

      I took this to a potluck dinner for 14 people. I got compliments all evening on it. It was the perfect end to a great meal. I used pound cake instead of angel food cake. And I used cheese cake flavored pudding mix. I added the crushed pineapple to the whipped mixture. I will definitely make this again.

      I didn't line the bowl with the strawberries and kiwi - I chopped them both in decent sized chunks and made them a layer....I used pound cake instead of angel food as I prefer how much more "stable" it is in a trifle. So I layered cake, banana and pineapple, then whipped mixture then strawberry kiwi mixture then repeated it again. This is so good and all the fruit is a real treat! Served it for 16 dinner guests and they all raved about it!
