Pumpkin Trifle

So my super secret pumpkin trifle... is yummy.

First up... cake.

Make 1 pkg spice cake according to directions, only cut back a little on the oil and water. Because you're going to add 1/2 a 15 oz can of pumpkin puree to it.

Bake according to directions and cut part of it into cubes once cooled.

Second.... it's a little washed out in this picture but the mixture in the measuring cup is our pumpkin mousse....

1/2 of a 15 oz can of pumpkin puree... (admit it... you were wondering what we were going to do with the other 1/2 of the can. ... )
1 1 oz pkg sugar free butterscotch pudding mix
1 C milk or half ~n~ half
3 tsp pumpkin pie spice.
1/2 of an 8oz container of cool whip.
Mix your choice of milk with the pudding mix and chill for 5 minutes. When thickened, stir with wire whisk to work out any lumps. Stir in pumpkin and spice. Once mixed, fold in the cool whip. Chill until ready to assemble.
To assemble....
start with a layer of cake cubes... top with pumpkin mousse and a layer of cool whip. Top with some sliced almonds or chopped pecans.
Repeat as often as your bowl... trifle dish.... crystal ice bucket from your grandma... will allow.

And.... Enjoy!
