Here is one (many) that you can use Basic Instructions To create this delightful dessert, you will need the following items: Triffle dish (ask for assistance in your local housewares store if you cannot locate one) Cake mix Pudding (choose a flavor that coordinates with the type of cake you chose) Whipped topping (ie, Cool Whip) Filling (fruit, candy, chocolate chips, etc) Step One: Bake the cake according to box directions. Step Two: Make pudding and chill for 1-2 hours. Step Three: Crumble about 1/3 to 1/2 of cake into bottom of bowl; layer with pudding; layer with filling; layer with whipped topping. Repeat until bowl is full. Garnish with extra filling. Now that you have the basic instructions for creating a triffle, let's learn how to create specialty triffles to coordinate with your life events. How can a triffle cake become the perfect addition to a holiday meal? Simple! Coordinate your choices of cake fillings and flavors with the time of year. Spring Triffle - yellow cake, vanilla pudding, whipped topping, peaches and strawberries (this is popular for baby and bridal showers as well as at Easter) Autumn Triffle (Pumpkin Spice)- gingerbread, pumpkin mixed with vanilla pudding, your choices of spices, whipped topping (a great variation from the Thanksgiving tradition of pumpkin pie!) Chocolate Toffee Birthday Triffle - chocolate cake, chocolate pudding, chocolate and english toffee chips, whipped topping Boston Cream Triffle - vanilla cake, chocolate pudding, whipped topping Fourth of July Triffle - vanilla cake, vanilla pudding, whipped topping, strawberries and blueberries (layer strawberries and blueberries on each side of whipped topping for stripes...and if you feel daring, try creating a fruit "flag" as your garnish) Chocolate Peanut Butter Triffle - chocolate cake, chocolate pudding, chocolate and peanut butter chips mixed with peanut butter, whipped topping (filling with be thick; drop by rounded spoonfuls into bowl and gently spread) This list goes on and on...use your imagination and your favorite flavors to create the triffle cake that best suits you! I'm sure you can find one here everyone will like. Have a safe and Happy Holiday weekend

What kind of triffle are you looking for a chocolate, fruit, pudding? It's hard to give you one without knowing what kind. Please be more specific.
