Trifle Spectacular

recipe from Miko Baca

1 pkg. chocolate or white cake mix prepared
1 14 0z. can sweetened condensed milk
1 c. cold h2o
3 oz. vanilla instant pudding
2 c. fresh sweetened whipped cream
2 T. orange juice, divided
2 1/2 c. sliced fresh strawberries, divided
1 pint fresh raspberries, divided
2 kiwi, peeled, sliced, and divided
1 1/2 c. cool whip, thawed for garnish
mint leaves for garnish (opt.)

Cook cake in two 9" round pans. Cool and cut one layer into 1" cubes. Freeze other layer for later use. Combine and stir milk and water in large bowl. Add pudding and beat. Chill 5 min. Fold whipped cream into pudding mixture.

Spread 2 c. pudding mix into a 3 qt. tall trifle dish. Arrange half the cake cubes over and then sprinkle with 1 T. orange juice. Layer with 1 c. strawberry slices, half the raspberries, and 1/3 of the kiwi slices and assemble to make the sides of the dish decorative. Repeat layers. Top with remaining pudding mixture. Garnish with cool whip and remaining fruit and mint leaves. Beautiful and impressive! * The picture shown has different fruit and lady fingers decorating the side. That's the beauty of a trifle---make it however you please!
