Gramma Durbin's Trifle Cake
My grandmother, born in 1916, loved all things Jell-O®! While going through her recipes, I adapted one of her favorites for my daughter's 33rd birthday party! I remember we loved this as children and it served a lot of people. Gramma's version featured only bananas for fruit. She also used Dream Whip® to top it. I added the extra fruit and used real whipped cream because let's face it; Dream Whip® just doesn't hold the appeal it did in the late 60's!
Make sure to lay the strawberries flat on the pudding or they will poke through the whip cream layer!
Beat the whipping cream with sugar and vanilla extract if desired.
