This recipe is a family favorite that comes from a former colleague of mine who wowed everybody at work with it when we had one of our pot lucks. I have made it so many times and have experimented with different variations:

*Home made pound cake or angel food cake
*Lemon pudding
*Homemade real whipping cream
*Added blueberries

For a reduced sugar version use sugar free angel food cake; strawberries with Splenda Sugar Blend; and sugar free pudding,

To eat it, just scoop it out with a serving spoon going down through the layers.
