Tutti fruiti trifle

When I got the invitation for Eid party,first let me explain you what Eid is?


It's a Muslim holiday after 30 days of fasting in the ninth islamic month of Ramadan,it's a reward from Allah(god) ,Muslim wear new and pretty clothes,give gifts or eidi (money) to the kids.Its celebrated on the first three days of the tenth luner month of Islamic calendar" Shawwal".

This Eid party is being celebrated after a while from Eid itself but as long as its party and Eid party so what's the better excuse,so it was a potluck I right away volunteered to make dessert and my favourite trifle.

Here are the ingredients:

Plain cake cut into slices( by the way I made the cake from scratch and recipe can be found here


Heavy whipping cream whipped with 1/2 cup sugar

Jello any flavor I made orange and fruit punch

1 each Instant pudding mix vanilla, white chocolate and cheesecake flavor

Milk 5 cups

Dried cranberries 1/4 cup

Caramel chips 1/4 cup

Cut up fruits into bite size pieces( I used red grapes halved,peaches juilliene,pineapple chunks

From a can and reserve the 1/2 cup juice)


Whisk instant pudding mixes into milk till its completely incorporated and chill it covered

Layer a deep container with cake first,put the juice from the pineapples on the cake pieces so its not dry


Now put the layer of pudding mix on top of cake layer evenly


Now put a layer of jello ,chopped fruits,dried cranberries, caramel chips


Then putting a thick layer of whipped cream on top of it,

Repeat layer until you reach almost top of your bowl

Decorate your top layer as you wish for ,it's nothing specific its your choice how you layer it and how you decorate e it will surely come out great!!!enjoy and receive lots of compliments at the party if you are taking it to one otherwise enjoy yourself:))
