Strawberry Cheesecake Triffle

Ingredientscloseup of a strawberry cake trifle

  • 1 box strawberry cake mix plus ingredients for preparation (I used the Pillsbury brand)
  • 2 boxes instant cheesecake pudding mix (3.4 ounces each)
  • 3 cups 2% milk
  • 1 ½-2 pounds fresh strawberries washed, dried, and sliced
  • 16 ounces whipped topping thawed


  1. Prepare the strawberry cake according to the box instructions. Bake the cake and set it aside to cool. This can be done a day or two in advance if you’d like.
  2. Once the cake is cool, cut into 2 inch by 2 inch bite-sized pieces.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the pudding and milk until smooth. Place in the refrigerator until you are ready to assemble.
  4. Set aside 4-5 whole berries. Wash the remaining berries, remove the tops, and cut into small pieces. Set aside.
  5. Place ⅓ of the cake pieces in a single layer on the bottom of a trifle dish. Top with ⅓ of the cheesecake pudding and smooth into an even later.
  6. Add ⅓ of the whipped topping on top of the pudding and smooth. Top with about ⅓ of your slices strawberries. Repeat for 2 more layers.
  7. Top the trifle with the remaining whipped topping and halved strawberries.
  8. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours before serving.
  9. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours.
