Happy Easter!

Angel Lush Trifle

I hope everyone had a very happy Easter! Alex and I spent our first Easter as a married couple away from all of our family members, which is very sad. However, we received an invitation from one of Alex’s classmates to go over to his house and hang out this afternoon which we immediately jumped on. Despite the fact that we don’t have an oven in this darned hotel room, I was determined to bring a dessert. So I turned this Angel Lush recipe into a trifle because I didn’t bring my cake platter to Arizona with me. Unfortunately I was also not able to bring my Trifle Bowl so I just used a glass bowl that I had on hand. Not nearly as pretty as it could be but oh well! Everyone at the party loved this dessert.

Place a layer of angel food cake on the bottom of trifle dish; top with one-half of the pudding mixture. Place strawberry slices around the sides of the bowl so you can see them from the outside of bowl. Then place a layer of strawberries over the pudding and sprinkle half the blueberries over the layer. Repeat these steps starting with another layer of cake.
