Expert Tips

Pudding can be made a day or two in advance to make the assembly quicker.

If you prefer real whipped cream, you can replace the whipped topping by whipping a pint of whipping cream with 1 teaspoon vanilla and 3 to 4 tablespoons sugar with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form.

Trifle can be made several hours ahead and kept covered in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
