rainbow trifle

For the past couple of years I have made a trifle for dessert on Easter.
I'm not sure why, but now I seem to associate this Springtime holiday with a light and refreshing dessert, and trifle (especially one filled with fruit) seems to fit the bill!

Last year I made a cute bunny trifle featuring carrot cake and Peeps.
The year before that I made a pineapple upside-down trifle with pineapple, coconut, and strawberries, yummy.

But this Rainbow Trifle might be my favorite yet. It was full of fruit, and maybe it's just my pregnancy cravings, but I couldn't get enough of it! It has seven layers of Angel Food cake, vanilla pudding, and fruit to represent each of the seven colors of the rainbow.
Also, when I was writing this post I came to the realization that the word "rainbow" has seven letters and there are seven colors in a rainbow!
