This recipe fills a large punch bowl however I choose a large bowl and a medium size one to use for two celebrations on different nights. I baked two devils food cake boxed cake mixes, combined in one large pan that makes a nice high cake and tall slices. I mixed 2 packages of instant pudding, I used white soy milk just a personal choice..
Slice up the cake and layer the bottom of the bowl, filling the small places with smaller peices of cake.
Add a layer of chocolate pudding, and then I used thawed frozen rasberries as those are the birthday girls favorite berries, scoop them on juice and all..
Next a nice layer of dream whip which I allowed to soften in the fridge..
I crushed up some chocolate mint cookies adding a layer over the dream whip and then more cake..Followed by a nicely iced layer of cool whip.
I added fresh rasberries in a happy face, and all around the edge of the bowl.
To make this trifle you need two cakes mixes, two boxes of pudding following the directions on each. 2 tubs of cool whip, a container of frozen fruit some crushed up cookies or chocolate bar. The possiblities are endless!
