Strawberry Shortcake Trifle Dessert



  • 1-2 containers of fresh strawberries, washed and sliced
  • 1 quart (4 cups) of heavy whipping cream
  • 1 box of pound cake (16 oz)
  • 1 box of vanilla pudding mix (5 oz)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup powdered sugar


  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Prepare Pound Cake: Prepare the pound cake according to the directions on the box. Once baked, let it cool completely, then cut it into small bite-sized pieces.
  3. Prepare Whipped Cream: In a large mixing bowl, whip the heavy whipping cream until stiff peaks form. This can take a few minutes, so be patient. Once stiff peaks form, add the powdered sugar and vanilla extract, then gently fold them into the whipped cream until well combined. Set aside.
  4. Prepare Vanilla Pudding: Prepare the vanilla pudding according to the package directions. Once prepared, let it cool slightly.
  5. Assemble the Trifle: In a trifle bowl or a large glass serving dish, start by layering half of the pound cake pieces at the bottom.
  6. Add Pudding Layer: Spoon half of the prepared vanilla pudding over the pound cake layer, spreading it out evenly with a spatula.
  7. Add Whipped Cream and Strawberries: Next, spoon half of the whipped cream over the pudding layer and spread it out evenly. Then, arrange a layer of sliced strawberries on top of the whipped cream.
  8. Repeat Layers: Repeat the layers by adding the remaining pound cake pieces, followed by the rest of the vanilla pudding, whipped cream, and sliced strawberries.
  9. Chill: Place the assembled trifle dessert in the refrigerator to chill and set for at least 2 hours, or until ready to serve.
  10. Serve: Once chilled and set, serve your Strawberry Shortcake Trifle Dessert straight from the refrigerator.
  11. Enjoy: Dig in and enjoy this deliciously layered dessert with the perfect combination of sweet pound cake, creamy pudding, fluffy whipped cream, and fresh strawberries!
