Do you make a trifle, using bits of angel-food cake layered with pudding? Do you have other recipes?

Here is my favorite. I hope this is what you are looking for.

English Trifle

1/4 cup rum
1 cup sliced almonds
Angel food cake
3 small (approx 3 3/4 oz) packages of instant French vanilla pudding mix
6 cups half and half
1 cup of three fresh fruits sliced (I usually use whole blueberries, strawberries and peaches.)
1 cup of cool whip

Combine rum and almonds
Pour over cubed cake and marinate
Prepare pudding as directed on package using half and half instead of milk. Layer in trifle bowl making several layers; marinated cake, fruit mixture and pudding. Top with cool whip.

Thanks, everybody. I'll just have to use Cool-whip for whipped cream. It'll be ok w/ these recipes, won't it? I can't keep taking chances and spending money on the real thing.

If you prefer a recipe with Cool Whip, here is one of my favorites.

I prefer it made in the 9X13 pan and the glaze really isn't needed (or sometimes I just make a little of my own with some extra smashed up strawberries and sugar).

This one is good too. If the link doesn't pop up right, it's on the Kraft site and the name of it is "Angel Lush".

These all look WONDERFUL! I've been using the box-mix angel food cake b/c it saves so many eggs and the store-bought ones are too pricey. They seem ok. Obviously, I'm not a purist.

I look forward to times when both blueberries and peaches are available locally. I make a huge trifle with angel cake (homemade if I have time) and a pastry cream that is just a hair on the runny side. The pastry cream is not hard to make and is very rich. I cut the cake into big chunks and dip one side into a shallow puddle of rum. Then I just start layering cake, pastry cream, and fruit. So beautiful in a trifle dish!

The Chocolate Lover's Angel Cake from The Cake Bible is another favorite. I love it with whipped cream and fresh raspberries.
