Strawberry Peach Cheesecake Trifle

I wouldn’t say this is exactly like a normal trifle, but a made up dessert that my family makes for our potluck dinners we have all the time.  Trifle is the closest thing I can think to call it!  It has layers of fruit, cake, and a whip cream/pudding mix.  It’s quite delicious!  You can also change up the types of fruit, cake flavor, and pudding mix you use in the whip cream!  It’s fun to do different combinations, hello chocolate and strawberries!

What you need:

2 containers of frozen sliced strawberries, thawed
1 can peaches in syrup, mostly drained
1 strawberry cake mix (and needed ingredients to make)
1 container of cool whip
1 pint of heavy whipping cream
2 boxes cheesecake pudding mix

Prepare the cake mix and bake according to directions.  because we will be crumbling up the cake for our layers, you can speed this process up by baking the cake in a half sheet pan.  You can see someone stole a bite from the cake before I was able to get a picture!

Use a spoon to break up the cake into chunks.

In a bowl, whip together the heavy whipping cream, the 2 boxes of pudding mix, and a container of whip cream.  This will be pretty thick.  You want it thick, but you can add a dash of regular milk if it’s too tough to spread.  It should be like icing.

Layer in the bowl some of the larger chunks of cake, then all of the peaches.  Spread a layer of the whip cream mix on top of the peaches.  Then another layer of cake, then all of the strawberries with most of the juice.  Layer the rest of the cake on top of the strawberries, and then spread the rest of the whip cream mix on top of that.  

So your layers should be:
TOP
whip cream mix
cake
strawberries
cake
whip cream mix
peaches
cake
BOTTOM

You can sprinkle a bit of cake crumbs on top for a garnish if you like.

Keep in the refrigerator until serving.
