Holiday Trifle

This is a nice dessert for Christmas with its red & green fruit, but it can be enjoyed anytime of the year. I have made this using white chocolate or cheesecake instant pudding. Both, equally good. I also have cheated and bought a chocolate loaf cake and cut that up instead of baking a cake. I'm all for saving time!
