There are so many ways you can play with this recipe. You can basically put whatever you like and it’s still going to be called trifle. But my recipe is simple and it works wonders to my family.
Without any further ado, here is the recipe for the Super Easy Leftover Birthday Cake Trifle.
Prepare the pudding per the pudding directions. Set aside.
Cut the leftover cake into pieces. Layer the glass container first with cut cake enough to cover the bottom of the container, then, chocolate pudding. Top the chocolate pudding with the vanilla pudding and, then, top the vanilla pudding with cool whipped topping.
Repeat the process until your desired trifle height is reached. Top with chocolate shavings and refrigerate for 4 hours before serving.
Note: The thickness of the cake, pudding, and cool whipped topping depends on how high you want your trifle be.
That’s about it. See, you can make a dessert without baking or cooking. All you need to do is whip some pudding and do some layering and that’s it.
