Lemon Trifle

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Lvs2Cook

I made this for dessert on Easter and it was the perfect choice! A wonderful dessert for special occasions. I made a scratch angel food cake but I did not include that in the cooking time. The recipe comes from America's Best Recipes -- A 2003 Hometown Collection.

I have made this several times, and it is absolutely delicious. I have taken it to potlucks on a few occasions and have assembled the layers into single serving clear plastic cups. They still look gorgeous and are very easy to serve that way. I generally skip the coconut and decorate the top with berries. I love, love, love this recipe!
