I like making trifles---they are so very easy and adaptable----but one of my best ones has got to be the Orange trifle-----
make a yellow batter boxed cake----you could use a pound cake you buy but I don't think it would be quite as good---
make two boxes of instant vanilla pudding mix--
you will need two containers of cool whip or your own whipped cream-
one large can of mandarin orange slices---keep the juice!
cube your cake---layering cake-then some of the orange juices---pudding--cool whip and so on---topping with the orange slices----it is addicting
if you don't have a trifle dish---you could use a pretty glass dish or bowl---but then go get a trifle dish--they aren't expensive and they can also make a lovely way to display your salads-
I served this once at a tea and it was easily the win of the day!
