I made Vonda a Strawberry Cheese Cake Trifle for her birthday a few years back. Trifles are relatively easy to make. Usually you layer some fruit with whipped creme and chunks of Angel Food Cake. However, I have fallen in love with using Philadelphia Cheese Cake filling that comes in a container like Cool Whip. It turns a regular trifle into a gourmet trifle.

Simply start with a fruit then. Then add a layer of Angel Food Cake. Next add the cheese cake whipped topping and repeat. The top layer should be on top of the cheese cake topping so you have a nice sticky canvas with which you can use your fruit to decorate. I like the strawberry floral design.
