Delicious layered Neapolitan Trifle with chocolate and strawberry cake!


  • 1 chocolate cake mix, with ingredients
  • 1 strawberry cake mix, with ingredients
  • 1 box (3.4 ounce) instant chocolate pudding mix
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 pint fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 12 ounce Cool Whip, thawed


  1. Prepare cake mixes according to package directions in a 13x9 baking dish. Cool completely. You will only need HALF of each cake. You can put the remaining cake (cut into chunks) into the freezer for a later dessert.
  2. Prepare chocolate pudding mix with milk according to package. Allow to set up in refrigerator for 5 minutes. In a large glass bowl, lay your chocolate cake and pour the prepared pudding over the cake. Top this with the strawberry cake and fresh berries. Cover the trifle in Cool Whip.
  3. Optional: dip one of the strawberries in melted chocolate as a garnish.
  4. Store in refrigerator until ready to serve. Keep in refrigerator for up to 3 days. ENJOY.


  • Freeze half of the strawberry cake, and half of the chocolate cake. (Or double the cheesecake filling for a very large dessert).
  • You can also bake ONLY the chocolate cake, use strawberries (skip the strawberry) cake, and use the cheesecake filling.
