I found this recipe on-line from email I receive from Taste of Home. This is what the author of the recipe states: "It looks so elegant with alternating layers of gingerbread cake and pumpkin/butterscotch pudding," she writes from New London, Missouri. "Try making it ahead of time for a fuss-free dessert when you're planning to entertain guests." Updated 12/2010: I made this for our Christmas dessert and only used 2 boxes (rather than 4 boxes) of the pudding (which works out to be 4 cups of pudding once milk was added and it was more than enough for this trifle dessert).
