    Make the pudding according to the directions.

    Starting with the pudding, layer half of it in the bottom of a trifle dish.

    Alternating strawberries and raspberries, start by lining them up on the edge of the dish so that they will show. Fill in the middle with berries.

    Add half of the cake cubes.

    Add a generous layer of cook whip.

    Repeat the layers with the remainder of the ingredients.

    Refrigerate for two hours before serving.
