From Quick Cooking 2003 Measure the trifle bowl to the cake and if the diameter of the cake is larger than the bowl, trim it to fit or you can cut the cake into cubes. Very pretty presentation. Allow 3 hours to chill before serving.

- 2 (3 1/2 ounce) packages vanilla instant pudding mix
- 1 prepared angel food cake (approx 8-inch diameter)

This was beautiful as well as tasty. I skipped the canned pears because they did not seem to add much, as far as color or flavor. My company loved it and ate it all. I will definitely make again.
I made this for Christmas! The only changes I made were: I made a corn flour spongecake for the cake base, and I made my own whipped cream (and no blueberries). I made 2 of these trifles - one exact to recipe, and the other with the cake soaked in Creamy Sherry. They were both spectacular! They were also spooned into before I could take a photo!!! haha, but they were enjoyed by all. Thank you for the recipe :)
