Strawberry Shortcake Trifle

Tomorrow, June 14, is National Strawberry Shortcake Day!  
Who knew?!  
In honor of such a yummy day, I thought I’d make my Strawberry Shortcake Trifle.  
I love this recipe because it’s just like Strawberry Shortcake but in a trifle form…which means it should be made in advance.  I make mine the day before and then wait 24 hours to serve.  
Easy, easy, easy and yummy, yummy, yummy.  Trust me, your friends and family this summer will love you for making this!  And you will love how it’s prepared in advance and ready and waiting on you :).
Shopping List
1 large (5 oz) instant vanilla pudding
3 cups milk
1 can Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 (12 oz) Cool Whip, thawed a bit
1 pound cake, cubed (I just used one frozen Sarah Lee pound cake)
1 pint of fresh strawberries, sliced
In a mixing bowl, combine pudding and milk with a whisk.  Then whisk in Eagle Brand Milk and Cool Whip.  In your serving dish, layer some pound cake pieces, a few strawberry slices and some pudding mixture.  Repeat until you reach the top.  Keep refrigerated until you’re ready to serve.  (The longer it sits in the refrigerator, the better it becomes…sometimes as long as 3 days.)
I have layered this pudding in mason jars, trifle dishes, big bowls…a multitude of things.  Sometimes, I make individual puddings and sometimes I make one big dessert in a use trifle dish.  It’s up to you!
This recipe serves 10 to 12 adults.

This little recipe just is summer.  Enjoy!
This is the pound cake I used…it’s right there in your freezer section of the grocery store.  You can use this or any other pound cake you like.

    Do you thaw Poundcake first ?
