Pour half of the thawed strawberries (with syrup) over cake; spread with 2 cups of the pudding. Place remaining cake pieces on pudding and around edge of bowl. Top with remaining strawberries and pudding. Cover; refrigerate at least 2 hours until chilled.

Expert Tips

  • Also known as “punch bowl cake,” this showy layered dessert is just as delicious made with other fruits such as pineapple, mango, blueberries, raspberries or a mixture of berries.
  • Mix and match to take an ordinary clear glass bowl uptown! Create a pedestal serving dish for a buffet. To make, turn a small bowl upside down and attach sturdy double-sided tape or sticky wax to the bottom. Then place the trifle bowl on the “pedestal” for a dramatic presentation. It's easiest if you match the dishes before making the trifle.
