I absolutely loved this, along with all my friends! had my doubts while I was putting it together but it turned out wonderful. very yummy orange taste and not overly sweet. I ended up putting some plain cool whip on top as well and next time would probably also put a thin layer of plain cool whip in the middle. can't wait to try using raspberries with this recipe.

Very unique recipe! I loved how low in fat it was!! Very nice flavour! This makes a very large bowl of trifle. I made it for our weekly Sewing Circle & there was enough to go around plus leftovers. My only complaint was that it was a tad on the sweet side (wish I could have found light sherbet) & it didn't fully the set the way I thought it should.

I made this with pound cake as that was what I had on hand. I made this otherwise as directed. The crowd at the potluck loved it and one woman tried to buy the partially empty bowl from me! Would be wonderful for a summer BBQ.
