I doubled the recipe and served it in a punch bowl for a crowd and everyone raved about it for days. I did not have sherry and it did not matter, everything else was done per your directions. Thank you for sharing this easy, yummy and impressive recipe.

This was a nice treat!...I made a few changes though! I used a frozen 4-berry combo and didn't use sherry. Also, I layered the pudding before the berries. Finally, I used cool whip on top instead of dream whip. It was really pretty and impressive to my guests! I guess it was a good thing I burned the top of my Angel Food cake and needed to find a way to save our dessert! The berry trifle worked! it was such an easy way to do angel food cake. Thanks LeeLoo!
