Prepare your cook and serve vanilla pudding as per package instructions. You’ll need to do this ahead of time as the pudding needs to cool completely before assembling in the trifle. As it cools place a piece of wax paper or parchment paper over the pot or bowl to make a creamier pudding as well as prevent the top from getting hard. Stir periodically to allow steam to escape.
Wash all your berries and allow to dry.
You can cut your angel food cake or just rip into bite sized pieces.
Start with cake on the bottom of your dish, layer with some pudding then cool whip and berries. Layer in that order so that the pudding can soak into the cake. Keep layering and arranging.
Arrange the top any way you like. Be creative!
