Pumpkin Spice Trifle

Cookin' Mimi: Pumpkin Spice Trtifle

This is a day late but at least I remembered to post it. It’s the thought that counts right? Anyway, this is delicious. Mama said it tasted like pumpkin pie without the crust. Everyone in my house loved it including the nephew. We don’t care too much for gingerbread around these parts so I substituted a spice cake made from a mix and used pumpkin pie spice instead of the cardamom. The original  recipe can be found on page 217 of The Lady and Sons, Too or on the Food Network site.
