Super good and gets better with time if you have any leftover. I, too, made the cake and whipped cream from scratch. I had thirteen for dinner so made one and a half times the ingredients. I might just call this my Christmas cake.
I made this for a X-mas party. I made the pound cake old fashion style, and whipped topping form scratch. Making the layering for the trifle was super easy and fast. I made this the day before the party. Everyone LOVED it! I can't wait to make this dish again!
