Very yummy recipe! It's a keeper. Prepare the pudding mix according to package directions though before folding in the whip topping and sour cream. The recipe didn't state that. I soaked my bananas in the pineapple juice, but didn't use the crushed pineapple in the trifle. Instead, I just used fresh strawberries, fresh raspberries and blueberries, and the pineapple-soaked bananas. Garnished with the reserved fruits and a light dusting of cocoa powder. I used just 1 9" angel food cake, but I think the next time around I will use 2 angel food cakes for more heartiness. Other than that, this dessert was fabulous! No leftovers. The creamed topping is simply delicious. I suggest assembling and keeping the trifle in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours to let the flavors develop before serving. The whipped mixture will seep into the layers of the fruits and meld with everything. My husband showed off my creation to our guests, as I had served it in a trifle pedestal bowl. It not only looked gorgeous, but it tasted just as awesome!
