Trifle is a great dessert to make to feed a crowd and it's so easy to make. Growing up trifle always had Jello, cake, custard and fruit in alternating layers. To make this even easier, I used Instant Pudding instead of making a custard from scratch. You can buy pound cake but I chose to make my own cake and used this recipe without the pistachios. I baked it in a 9x13 pan. I had some cake leftover after assembling the trifle.
